During an interview with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show, Billie Eilish revealed that she recorded a new album during the COVID lockdown.

“I don’t think I would’ve made the same album, or even the album at all, if it weren’t for Covid,” she told Colbert. “That doesn’t mean it’s about Covid at all, it’s just that, when things are different in your life, you’re different. That’s just how it is. So, I have to thank Covid for that, and that’s about it.”

The “Bad Guy” singer kept most of the details secret. When asked what we could expect from the new album Eilish said, “There’s a couple of moments on this album where I pull some tricks out. It’s really just about what I feel like sounds good.”

It’s been almost two years since she released her last album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? and since then she’s dropped “All I Ever Wanted”, “No Time to Die”, “My Future”, and a duet with Spanish singer Roslaia titled “Lo Vas Olvidar”.

Eilish also talked about her soon-to-be-released documentary, The World’s a Little Blurry, and James Bond.
