Billie Eilish New Album

If you're a Billie Eilish fan, then you already know all about it and you're eyeballing the calendar on your smart device counting down the days.

Billie is dropping a brand new album, Hit Me Hard and Soft, and according to all of her Instagram posts about it (including announcing the album by just straight up dropping the track listing with the message "all done"), it'll be in our eardrums on Friday, May 17.

Billie Eilish Barbie Song

Billie has been riding an epic wave lately, and it started almost a year ago back around the Barbie movie excitement.

Not only did her song off the movie's soundtrack, What Was I Made For?, blow up huge and become one of the most streamed and played songs when it dropped, but it also went on to win Best Original Song at the Golden Globes, Song of the Year at the GRAMMYs, and Best Original Song at the Oscars.

Billie Eilish Coachella

Then there was her surprise appearance at Coachella, where she joined Lana Del Rey on stage during her set to perform two songs.

It was also a huge moment for Billie, as Lana paid the biggest compliment she's possibly ever received (multiple award wins be damned), calling Billie "the voice of our generation."

Billie Eilish Tour

Billie kept riding that wave and dropped another announcement, that, as expected, a new album means a brand new tour. And, since she has a massive New England fanbase, Billie made sure she rolled through our region, making Boston a stop for her Hit Me Hard and Soft Tour at TD Garden on October 11, 2024.

But Billie just dropped another bomb that New England fans and fans from across the country will be dogfighting for -- an opportunity to actually listen to her brand new album before it drops WITH HER.

Billie Eilish Listening Party

In the two days before Hit Me Hard and Soft drops, Billie will be holding two separate listening parties across the country from each other, and she'll be at both.

On Wednesday, May 15, Billie will be just a few hours away from us here in New England at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, for her first album listening party with fans.

Then, she hops a flight across the country for her second listening party at a spot New England literally just had a link to a couple of days ago, the Kia Forum in Los Angeles, California, which was also the site for the Tom Brady roast that aired live on Netflix.

And tickets to see Billie at TD Garden in Boston on October 11 are also still on sale as of this writing.
