While fans were certainly bummed out to hear that she will not be releasing a new album until the option to tour is back on the table, Billie Eilish will be holding her legion of followers at bay with a new film.
Billie dropped the announcement on social media today saying, "The documentary film about Billie Eilish, titled “Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry” and directed by RJ Cutler, will be released in theaters and on Apple TV+ in February 2021."
Her brother and producer, FINNEAS, made the announcement about their moratorium on albums in the age of COVID, telling Australian newspaper The Herald Sun, “Billie’s album, and my album, they won’t be a bummer COVID record... I have a desperate desire not to release them during COVID-19. It’s the vaccine record! I want it to be the album everyone’s out dancing in the streets to.”
The brother and sister pair are serious about the pandemic, even as many younger people are shirking their responsibilities to keep the public safe. Billie put Gen-Z partygoers on blast in a recent Instagram post saying “Funny how I haven’t hugged my best friends in six months and y’all are out here partying.”
So, rather than being a super-spreader, consider picking up this amazing Fender/Billie Eilish model ukulele and start learning how to play. If My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way can do it, why can't you?
