Billie Eilish, who won multiple Grammys and achieved global rock fame with her debut album, When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, tells fans in the trailer for her upcoming Apple documentary that she occasionally sleeps in her parents’ bed «because I’m scared of monsters in my room.»
Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry, set to premiere in theaters via Neon and on Apple TV+ on Feb. 26, and directed by R.J. Cutler for Apple Original Films, reveals how Eilish’s parents and family are key to allowing the teenager to deal with a skyrocketing career.
«Why can’t we miss people? Why do we have to cope? Why can’t we just let it happen,» Eilish asks her mother at one point in the coming-of-age film. «Because it hurts,» comes the response.
Eilish is also behind the theme song for the latest James Bond film, No Time to Die.
Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry portrays the teenager’s journey, at just 17 years old, as she navigates life on the road, onstage and at home with her family while writing, recording and releasing her debut album.
The documentary is also produced by Interscope Films, The Darkroom, This Machine and Lighthouse Management & Media.
