Billie Eilish is blonde and ready to release her new single and album. Here's everything we know about them so far.

Billie Eilish is back with a new hairstyle, a new song and she's just revealed that her new album is called Happier Than Ever.

Last year (Dec 22), Billie Eilish teased on Instagram that she would be changing her hair and starting a new era in 2021. Fans then came up with detailed theories that Billie was wearing a wig at the Grammys this year to hide the fact that she'd dyed her hair and they were right. Billie later posted a photo of her new blonde hair and teased: "things are comingggg".

When is the Billie Eilish Happier Than Ever release date?

Today (Apr 27), Billie took to Instagram to share the official Happier Than Ever art and confirm that the album comes out July 30. She wrote: "MY NEW ALBUM “Happier Than Ever” OUT JULY 30TH! this is my favorite thing i’ve ever created and i am so excited and nervous and EAGER for you to hear it. i can’t even tell you."

She added: "i’ve never felt so much love for a project than i do for this one. hope you feel what i feel. alsoooo new song out thursday at 9am too!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH". The new song out Thursday (Apr 29) is the title track.

What are Billie Eilish's 'Happier Than Ever' lyrics about?

In the short snippet of 'Happier Than Ever' that we've heard so far, Billie sings: "When I'm away from you / I'm happier than ever." Discussing the song in her The World's a Little Blurry documentary, Billie said: "The whole song is just more like nothing even specific that they did, you’re just not happy being with them. Can’t even explain it."

In other words, it appears that Billie is singing about realising that she's unhappy in a relationship. It was possibly inspired by her ex-boyfriend Q.
