Billie Eilish performed the set with her older brother Finneas who has just announced his own debut album 'Optimist' will be released this autumn.
Following a successful first week for her sophomore album Happier Than Ever, Billie Eilish performed a four-song set for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge.
Performing with her brother and collaborator Finneas, they played three of the tracks ('Getting Older', 'I Didn’t Change My Number' and single 'NDA') from the new record plus a bonus cover of Julie London's pop standard 'I’m in the Mood for Love'.
Happier Than Ever follows Eilish's debut 2019 record When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? and has achieved massive success since its release last Friday. With three songs predicted for the weekly official chart, the album has outsold the rest of the top ten albums in the chart combined.
To continue the Happier Than Ever hype, Eilish is set to release a Disney+ concert special titled Happier Than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles on 3rd September. The special will feature songs from her new album performed live at the Hollywood Bowl, and will mark the second Eilish documentary of the year, following Apple TV+'s The World’s a Little Blurry.
As well as this, early next year, Eilish will embark on a world tour for the album, with North American dates set to start in February 2022. The singer is also booked to headline this year’s Austin City Limits, Firefly, Governors Ball, and Life Is Beautiful festivals.
