Billie Eilish has announced the impending new documentary called Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry. The feature film, which will be released in cinemas and exclusively through Apple TV+ in 2021, has been in the works for a number of months.
The film, Which has been directed by R.J. Cutler, has been created as an Apple Original and, according to a press release, comes in collaboration with Interscope Films, Darkroom, This Machine, and Lighthouse Management & Media.
The music documentary will focus on the 18-year-old musician during a period in which she released her debut and critically acclaimed album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? and will be officially released in February next year. The film will also feature numerous unseen archival footage of Eilish as a child along with conversations with her brother and collaborator Finneas.
The film will chronicle Eilish’s meteoric rise to fame, starting from humble beginnings as a budding child singer recording songs on her homemade tape recorder to Grammy Award-winning superstar. While building a name for herself with a series of immensely popular releases online, the ‘ocean eyes’ singer rose to prominence when her debut album swept the four major categories during the Grammys, picking up the award for Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year. She also collected the award for Best Pop Vocal which meant her tally went up to five.
The win was a history-making one, too. Eilish is now the youngest solo performer to ever win Album of the Year. She beat the previous holder by two years, wiping out Taylor Swift’s achievement on Fearless. Eilish also became the first woman and second person ever to win Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist in the same year, all of which will be covered in the new film.
