Billie Eilish’s New Pop Perspective
When Billie Eilish swept through the biggest Grammy categories in early 2020, she was a phenomenon, but not quite a pop star. His music tended to be dark and insular, and his voracious fan base grew online among young people, not on the radio.
A pandemic later, and Eilish’s world – and his worldview – grew. His new # 1 album, “Happier Than Ever”, tackles his fame and wages, head-on, with his most emotionally specific lyrics. It’s an album made by someone who just came out of the womb.
On this week’s Popcast, a conversation about Eilish’s musical and personal developments, how she navigated growing up in public, and the harsh feeling of the internet starting to ignite.
