Eilish debuted her highly-anticipated second album at the end of July. Before Happier Than Ever‘s release, she dropped several singles from the album, including “Your Power,” “NDA,” “Therefore I Am,” and more. She also teased a “new era” leading up to the release with a drastically different hairstyle and some differences in her musical style.

During a recent interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, Eilish said she is “unbelievably over the moon” about the positive responses.

On Aug. 24, Eilish unveiled the Happier Than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles trailer, as seen above. In the video, she said she “definitely [has] fantasies about LA…a whole different world interwoven with my world.” As far as the Disney+ concert’s location, Eilish said The Hollywood Bowl venue is “timeless.”
Those who have loved every second of Eilish’s new album are in luck; she’ll perform all 16 songs in the same order as the record.
“I’ve never done anything like this,” Eilish added. “It’s a concert film, but it’s also a story at the same time. This kind of beautiful version of Old Hollywood.”
Speaking to Fallon, Eilish shared some behind-the-scenes details about the Disney+ concert. Under the direction of Robert Rodriguez, Eilish filmed the experience “in the middle of the night” in an empty venue over the course of four nights.
“It was crazy,” she said.
The singer will embark on another world tour in September
On Feb. 3, Eilish will head out for another world tour, starting in New Orleans. She’ll tour around the U.S. and Canada until April. From June to July 2022, she’ll travel around the U.K., Ireland, Germany, Belgium, and Switzerland. Many of her U.S. tour dates have already sold out completely.
“I’ve had, like, six dreams this week about shows,” Eilish told Fallon. “Dead serious. It’s been so long. It’s gonna have been two years, and that’s crazy to me. I can’t wait.”
When asked which song she’s most excited to perform, Eilish knew the answer immediately: “For sure, ‘Happier Than Ever.'”
Happier Than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles launches on Sept. 3 on Disney+. Eilish’s album, Happier Than Ever, is available everywhere now.
