"There was just so much reflection," she tells Zane Lowe.
Billie Eilish wanted to be uncomfortable while recording her upcoming second album, Happier Than Ever. In a new interview with Apple Music 1's Zane Lowe, the singer explained that her goal in the studio during the sessions for the follow-up to her multiplatinum, Grammy-winning debut, 2019's When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, was to surprise her fans -- and herself.
"I really wanted it to be unexpected, almost. Honestly, it's so funny, because I write with structure in my head about verses and pre-choruses, and then chorus, and then verse, pre-chorus, chorus, bridge, chorus, end," she told Lowe about the single "NDA," which arrived Friday (July 9). Explaining that that's how she and her producer/brother Finneas leaned how to make music, Eilish said "NDA" was "not in my comfort zone, and that's fun to me."
