Pop Waif Billie Eilish, New Song, Album “When I’m Away from You, I’m Happier Than Ever” Coming This Week: SNL Soon?


It’s no time to rest on laurels.

Billie Eilish will release a new song on Thursday, and a new album on July 30th. The now platinum blonde offers a clip with the lyrics, “When I’m away from you, I’m happier than ever.”

LOL. This should be good.

Presumably, brother Finneas– I call them the Emo Carpenters — wrote the songs. Since Adele released her last album, this pair has won about 50 Grammys and released about 15 records. Just sayin’…

PS I’ve no doubt Eilish will bat an eyelash before the season finale “SNL” next month…
