Hot off dropping “when the party’s over”, Billie Eilish releases the beautifully simple “come out and play” and confirms her debut album in 2019!
We all remember hearing “ocean eyes” come on shuffle on our Pandora stations, but little did we know Billie Eilish would grow to be the young yet undeniably talented sensation she is today. Her debut EP don’t smile at me has remained on repeat for me ever since its release, and I am certain others can say the same–between the killer-cold vibes of “bellyache” and emotionally-strained pleas in “idontwannabeyouanymore”, Billie Eilish has manifested herself within the hearts of listeners worldwide. Now, she stitches together adventurous whim and comforting chord progressions to create her new single, “come out and play”.
The sixteen-year-old works alongside her brother, Finneas O’Connell, to create moody, authentic lyricism and unique beats to match. Pulling from organic instruments as well as electronic influence, the siblings’ creations are finding themselves followers from the corners of hip-hop, EDM, and indie fanbases. Since hearing don’t smile at me for the first time, Billie has been one of my favorite artists because of her painful honesty about issues a lot of us silently struggle with: heartbreak, depression, and low self-esteem.
It’s not all loneliness and heartache, though–“you should see me in a crown” and “copycat” are inspiring pieces that ooze “bad bitch” energy. Between her impeccable vocal range and lyrical craftiness, Billie is just as electric on stage as she is in the studio. The ex-dancer carries her passion into all of her live performances, intricately popping and stepping to each pulsing beat. Through and through, she is an artist, and she never fails to prove that.
“come out and play” is a complete 180 from “when the party’s over”, changing out somber melodies and mournful crooning with wispy vocals and fluttering soundscapes promising better days ahead. Though the nature of the song is lighter than previous tunes, it’s guaranteed to pull at your heartstrings nonetheless. Listen to “come out and play” below and read on for more news about Billie Eilish in 2019!

It is with great pleasure that we announce Billie Eilish has confirmed a debut album for 2019!
A Billie album has been something fans have been begging for since don’t smile at me was released, and with her more current single track releases, I can only imagine the imaginative diversity she’ll bring to the table with an entire album.
The multi-platinum selling artist is currently sold out on her North American 1 BY 1 tour and will be wrapping it up for three nights in her hometown of Los Angeles this week. Aside from her own curated tours, Billie has found herself on the stages of festivals spanning from Okeechobee and Camp Flog Gnaw to Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza. As her latest releases gain more traction with each day, so does her dedicated fanbase–and for good reason. It is refreshing to see a raw, completely unique artist at such a young age take the music industry by storm, paving her own path while being unapologetically herself.
