Billie Eilish says it was “fun” to step out of her “comfort zone” on her latest single, “NDA”.
The Grammy-winner this week released the track from her long-awaited second studio album, “Happier Than Ever,” and she admitted the goal was to create something “unexpected” for fans.
Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, she said: “I really wanted it to be almost unexpected. Honestly, it’s so funny, because I write with structure in my head on the verses and the pre – chorus, then the chorus, then the verse, the pre-chorus, the chorus, the bridge, the chorus, the end. “
The 19-year-old star also explained that conversations in therapy inspired her words.
She added, “It makes me talk about things, and then I think about it constantly. I talk about things in therapy that I don’t even think about in my life.
“And then during the week I was like, ‘Wow, that thing we talked about in therapy, I should write about it. It’s really interesting. “
“And it’s really useful, it gets it out of you and it’s really necessary.”
Billie did a lot of “self-reflection” on the new album.
She added: “There was so much soul searching that I was doing.
“I was realizing things about my life that I had never even dealt with, and I realized that I had never dealt with.
“And the same with the things that I’ve witnessed around me that I’ve seen happen. And just talk about it and bring it out of me, and then you know, make it sound good. “
‘Happier Than Ever’, which releases July 30, also includes the previously released singles ‘Your Power’, ‘my future’ and ‘Lost Cause’.
