The 19-year-old singer opened up about the creation of her sophomore album and how she felt a ‘self-reflection’ while making it, while speaking to Vevo, reported ‘People’ magazine.
“I wanted to make a very timeless record that wasn’t just timeless in terms of what other people thought, but really just timeless for myself,” she said.
“The main thing that I would hope is for people to hear what I say, and then go, ‘Oh God, I feel like that I didn’t know that I felt like that. But this is how I feel,’ and maybe make a change in their life that makes them happier,” she continued.
The album was very natural and satisfying for Eilish as she explained that she had a lot of ‘self-reflection’ while making the album. “Before, I always felt under pressure and anxious and felt like I wasn’t doing enough, right, or doing a good job. Or this isn’t good enough. I felt like I wasn’t very talented at the time, and I actually feel much more confident in my craft now,” she said.
“And I feel that I’ve worked really hard on that. And I think that this album was made in a very perfect time for me creatively,” Eilish added.
According to reports, the singer, who described herself as a private person, said that despite being in the public eye for years, people don’t know her “at all”.
“Anytime I see an impression on the internet, it just reminds me how little the internet knows about me. Like, I really don’t share. I have such a loud personality that makes people feel like they know everything about me and they literally don’t at all,” she said.
Apart from ‘Happier Than Ever’, Eilish is also set to perform in a Disney+ concert film, which will premiere in September.
