Billie Eilish Is Calling the Shots
 
On a warm July evening in the backyard of a private Beverly Hills mansion secured by Spotify, a crowd of A-list stars including Olivia Rodrigo, Ben Platt, Willow and Jaden Smith, Amanda Kloots, and Khalid is counting down the minutes until the official release of Billie Eilish's sophomore album, Happier Than Ever. Eilish is both excited and nervous about the world finally listening to her new album, which she likens to letting other people taste her "favorite cookie" she's been baking in secrecy for the past year. Wearing vintage Prada sunglasses, a copper Miaou corset with a sheer, long-sleeve black Maison Margiela shirt, and vegan TLZ L'Femme black vinyl strappy pants, she addresses the crowd from the top of a staircase overlooking an illuminated cerulean pool. "This is fucking nuts!" she says with a throaty cackle. "I am so happy to see people in person and get hugs and see smiles…and my album comes out in two minutes!" As she shakes her microphone triumphantly in the air, the crowd bursts into wild cheers.

"I just love this album," she says, leaning over the wrought iron balcony. "It's my favorite thing I've ever created." After thanking her brother and collaborator, Finneas, she throws her head back and lets out a gleeful whoop. "I'm just so stoked!" she says. At exactly 9 p.m. PDT, the album bursts through the sound system. Fifteen minutes into the listening session, the title track begins to play. And as the lush, melancholy ballad explodes into a cathartic blast of hard rock, Eilish executes a perfect rock-star move—she jumps into the pool fully clothed. Without missing a beat, her two best friends, Zoe and Drew, jump in with her, and they all start singing the lyrics together at the top of their lungs.
