Billie Eilish's Debut EP Drops Today; North American Fall Tour Almost Sold Out

pixeltracker

Today, pop's most promising and exciting new artist Billie Eilish released her highly anticipated and acclaimed debut EP "dont smile at me" (Darkroom/Interscope Records). The collection of songs were produced by her 19-year-old brother Finneas O'Connell and arrive hot on the heels of her first ever North American headlining tour, which starts in October and is already close to selling out.

The worldwide buzz surrounding the release of "dont smile at me" has been undeniable following its official announcement last month. With praise pouring in from the likes of Rolling Stone Magazine who applauded Billie for her "whispery soprano" and "stark landscapes" and TIME Magazine complimenting her vocals twisting "deftly around the dark melodies and trap-influenced beats." Across the pond the prestigious BBC are already hailing her as "pop's best new hope."

Today, fans will get to hear two brand-new, previously unheard tracks from the EP. The first is "party favor," a delightful ditty "about breaking up with someone in a voicemail...on their Birthday" Billie explains and "hostage," a song that borders on and explores the unhealthy side of love. Billie points out "when you are so in love that you feel like you can't be without them and you can't see them with someone else. It is not a healthy feeling but I think everyone feels it at some point."

Now, with her debut EP out, featuring fan favorites such as opener "COPYCAT" (described as "smoldering" and "hip-hop influenced" by Billboard Magazine), this wonderfully moody pop gem is the first of 3 tracks to have been revealed by the 15-year-old this summer and comes as part of this stellar collection of 8 compelling songs available worldwide on all digital platforms from today.

This fall, Billie will head down-under to play three SOLD OUT shows in New Zealand and Australia, then will return to North American for her FIRST EVER headlining tour which kicks off on October 4 in Santa Ana, CA at the Constellation Room, before hitting Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Toronto, New York City, Boston, Philadelphia and concluding in Washington DC on October 21st at the Rock & Roll Hotel. The tour is SELLING OUT quickly, prompting a venue change in Seattle due to high demand. For tickets and more information, please visit http://www.billieeilish.com

In June, Billie unveiled her official video for her "Thirteen Reasons Why" Netflix Original soundtrack song "Bored." Check out the Miles & AJ-directed clip HERE. Described as "stunning" and "artistic" by V Magazine, the video entered the GLOBAL TOP 50 most trending videos on Youtube. The song itself has received more than 9.8 MILLION STREAMS on Spotify while Eilish has collectively amassed an impressive 90+ MILLION COMBINED STREAMS of her music to date.

This past summer Billie Eilish was featured in ELLE Magazine's annual Women In Music issue, who touted her as being "On The Verge Of Star Status" as did Teen Vogue in their Music Issue who hail the teenage artist as "THE next big thing." VOGUE Magazine called it early appointing her as "Pop's Next It Girl," whilst V Magazine foresee her as the "breakout star, headed to the top."
