The wait is over: Billie Eilish’s debut LP is here.
Ever since “Ocean Eyes” took flight in the later weeks of 2016, the pop wunderkind has enjoyed the type of word-of-mouth rush rarely seen in music. Don’t be mistaken, the kid is hot. And with When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? dropping at midnight, her career is set to go very large.
Eilish’s first full-length set stretches across 14 tracks including the fan-faves “Bury A Friend,” “You Should See Me In A Crown,” “When The Party’s Over,” “Wish You Were Gay,” new single “Bad Guy” plus 10 previously unheard songs.
Asleep is already a record-breaker. The set amassed more than 800,000 pre-adds on Apple Music, a new high mark on the streaming service, according to her label, Universal Music.
The 17-year-old Los Angeles native will support the album with a debut appearance tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, a performance slot next week on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and an immersive installation at The Stalls at Skylight Row in her hometown, which launches this weekend through a partnership with Spotify.
And, of course, she’ll take her show around the globe in the coming months, including Australia, where her upcoming headline trek is totally sold out, including a recently-announced venue upgrade.? Eilish’s world tour includes a spot on the Coachella stage next month and two shows at Glastonbury Festival in late June.
