There is a reason why the term “sophomore slump” exists. Sometimes that magic from your first record doesn’t quite add up. Not to mention the rising expectations and notoriety. That is not the case with Billie Eilish’s second record, Happier Than Ever from Darkroom and Interscope Records. With that the GRAMMY Award-winning and chart-topping artist is ready to make her Disney+ debut. Not in a feature film or a series, but a cinematic concert experience titled, Happier Than Ever: A Love Letter To Los Angeles.
This concert experience features all sixteen tracks from Billie Eilish’s new album performed in order. The venue will be the iconic Hollywood Bowl with Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. They claim that this will be the first and only time this will happen. Along with that, we will be taken on an animated journey through Billie Eilish’s hometown of Los Angeles. You can check out the trailer down below.
This feature is being directed by the critically acclaimed filmmaker Robert Rodriguez and Oscar-winner Patrick Osborne. It will feature FINNEAS, the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus, world-renowned Brazilian guitarist, Romero Lubambo. With Orchestra arrangements by David Campbell.
