Anderson .Paak and Kacey Musgraves will join Billie as the musicians appearing in the new season.
In its 52nd season, Billie Eilish will be one of the guest stars appearing on the American children's TV show Sesame Street.
As one of the many usual celebrity appearances on the show, she will join fellow musicians Anderson .Paak, Kacey Musgraves and Jon Batiste on the programme, as well as actress Keke Palmer and tennis superstar Naomi Osaka.
Eilish will share a scene with the math obsessed vampire The Count while .Paak will perform a song written for the upcoming season's Martin Luther King Day episode.
Other past musical guests in recent years have included Maggie Rodgers, Chance the Rapper and Dave Grohl.
Sesame Street had drawn controversy in recent years, with the iconic show that gave Kermit the Frog his debut appearance leaving its long time home of PBS (a free Public Access network) in 2015 to join the premium cable channel HBO. New episodes still air on PBS nine months after their debut on HBO
Meanwhile, Billie Eilish recently teamed up with the scientific group Arctic Basecamps to call for "urgent action" from world leaders ahead of COP26.
"This year our leaders are deciding the global actions required on the environment climate emergency in a critical decade for our planet," Eilish said.
"We must stand together and speak up to save our planet, not just for us, but for our future generations, and we need urgent, urgent action now and to work together as one."
