Billie Eilish Books Colbert for Next Week, Posts Snippet of Electronic Sounding “Open the Door” from New Album Coming Tomorrow Night


UPDATED: Billie will appear on next Tuesday’s Stephen Colbert Late Night show. She taped two songs last night in front of his audience including “Lunch” and “The Greatest.” The audience didn’t know she was going to perform until she started. Pretty cool.

Billie Eilish has found tikTok. She’s posted a song called “Open the Door” from her new album, “Hit Me Hard and Soft,” which will arrive tomorrow night at midnight.

Eilish and brother Finneas will hold listening sessions live tomorrow night in New York and Friday in Los Angeles. They’ll be beamed to AMC Theaters.

Expect “Hit Me” to knock Taylor Swift off her perch at number 1. But that’s ok. Swift has sold 3.5 million copies of “The Tortured Poets Department,” plus she’s made several billion from her tour.
