“I wanted to make a very timeless record, that wasn’t just timeless in terms of what other people thought, but really just timeless for myself,” she explained.

“I gathered a lot of inspiration from a lot of older artists I grew up loving. Mostly Julie London, and a lot of Frank Sinatra and Peggy Lee,” she revealed.

As for the album’s meaning itself, she said: “I don’t want to get too specific because I really think it’s for the listener to decide. I don’t want to put the ideas in their brains. I want them to feel 100% that their interpretation is the right interpretation.”

“There was so much self-reflection in the making of this album, that I think really comes through the songs,” she added.

Billie Eilish also reflected on her earlier records: “I felt like I wasn’t very talented at the time. I actually feel much more confident in my craft now…I think that this album was made in a very perfect time for me, creatively. It was so natural and easy and fun and calm.”

She also said releasing “Your Power” had to do with her synesthesia, which is a condition where information meant to stimulate one of your senses stimulates several of your senses, like colors and numbers. She said the song was “like a tan, brown color,” and Happier Than Ever is also that color.

Billie recently opened up about media treatment of herself and other pop stars, and advice that she’s gotten from her idols.
