The only thing freakier than Billie Eilish’s spider-swallowing “you should see me in a crown” promo video is her new album cover for WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? Following the nine-track alt-pop explosion that was Eilish’s 2017 release don’t smile at me, the singer has shared exorcism-esque album art of her forthcoming 2019 record, due out March 29 via Darkroom/Interscope.
Equally horrific is her new track “bury a friend,” which comes equipped with built-in screeches and lyrics like “I want to end me.” And it appears this new track will help shape the forthcoming LP.
“When we made ‘bury a friend,’ the whole album clicked in my head,” Billie says. “I immediately knew what it was going to be about, what the visuals were going to be, and everything in terms of how I wanted it to be perceived. It inspired what the album is about. ‘bury a friend’ is literally from the perspective of the monster under my bed. If you put yourself in that mindset, what is this creature doing or feeling?… I also confess that I’m this monster, because I’m my own worst enemy. I might be the monster under your bed too.”
