Billie Eilish is a 17 year old singer from Los Angeles with blue hair and Tourette’s Syndrome. Tomorrow she will have the number 1 album of the week with her debut release. “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” has already sold 200,000 copies. Half of those are actual downloads or CDs. The other half is streaming.
Eilish has a little girl voice, high and whispery. Her songs have melodies, kind of. She makes Melanie sound like Eartha Kitt.
Some of the songs on the album are actual songs, some are bits and pieces assembled in a fashion. My favorites include “All the Good Girls Go to Hell” and “I Love You.”
Recently, Eilish announced that she lives with Tourette’s Syndrome.
Elish’s debut will be the second highest for 2019 so far. And the highest for a new artist. There’s a lot of money behind her. Expect a slew of Grammy nominations. She’s the Lorde of 2019.
