19-year-old pop superstar Billie Eilish will release her sophomore album, Happier Than Ever, on July 30.

Eilish first teased the release with a cryptic video posted to social media earlier this week. Billboards confirming the album’s title and release date have since popped up in various cities.

Happier Than Ever will serve as the follow-up to Eilish’s landmark debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, which was released in March 2019. The record earned Eilish Grammys for Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best New Artist — making her the first female artist in history to win all four general field award categories in a single night.

Speaking about her next album during an appearance on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Eilish said, “I don’t think I would’ve made the same album, or even the album at all if it weren’t for COVID. That doesn’t mean it’s about COVID at all, it’s just that, when things are different in your life, you’re different. That’s just how it is. So, I have to thank COVID for that, and that’s about it.”

“There’s a couple of moments on this album where I pull some tricks out,” she teased. “It’s really just about what I feel like sounds good.”
