Billie Eilish fans should be happier than ever to learn that the 21-year-old pop star is closing in on finishing her third album.
Stopping by the Tonight Show Thursday (Dec. 14) — two days ahead of her return to Saturday Night Live — Eilish teased that she and her brother/producer Finneas are putting the final touches on her highly anticipated next record. “We are almost done with this new album we’re working on,” she told host Jimmy Fallon, putting her arms up to brace herself against the high-pitched screams she was immediately met with from the studio audience.
“So, at some point, you will know more, but I’m not going to say anymore now,” she added.
Without officially confirming, the “Bad Guy” artist also strongly hinted which song she plans to perform on SNL this weekend by pointing at her hat, which was emblazoned with the Barbie movie logo. Eilish contributed “What Was I Made For?” to the Greta Gerwig project’s soundtrack, scoring a No. 14 peak on the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this year.
“[Gerwig] was like, ‘I really want Barbie’s heart song,’” the Grammy winner recalled to Fallon of making the ballad with Finneas. “And that, like, stuck with us. That stayed with us.”
“I feel like [the song] brought women together in this way that I feel like I haven’t felt part of like that,” she continued. “It made me feel really good.”
Earlier this week, Barbie scored nine Golden Globe nominations – the most of any other project in the pool. The film is also responsible for three of the six total best original song nods, with “What Was I Made For?” in the running against “Dance the Night” by Dua Lipa and “I’m Just Ken” by Ryan Gosling.
