Billie Eilish talks about the mental traumas that have affected her new album


June 22, 2021

"I had to take a break when I was writing because I wanted to cry," reveals Billie Eilish.
Billie Eilish will talk about her new album on her mental trauma and her experiences with psychotherapy.

In a new interview with "Rolling Stone", the 19-year-old singer talks about the source of the painful memories from which she drew inspiration for her upcoming album entitled "Happier Than Ever", which will be released on July 30.

"I went through some crazy things and they really affected me and made me never want to approach anyone," says Billie Eilish.

"There have been times when I have been really influenced by someone and I said, 'I have to tell you how you made me feel.' And he answered me something that was: “I can't handle it right now. I can't handle it right now. "It's too much for me," he said.

Billie Eilish admits that she is tired of being "destroyed" by hurt people who hurt other people.

"I was talking to a friend about his life and he told me all these crazy traumatic things that happened to them. And I said, "Oh, right, you don't have to treat everyone like rubbish just because you got hurt," he says.

"There is no problem in being traumatized by something and being biased because of a previous experience, but there is no excuse for human abuse. There is no. I feel like everything is an excuse all the time. "Excuses, excuses", he emphasizes.

This power is transferred to Billie Eilish's new album, as in the song "Getting Older", in which the pop star sings: "It was not my decision to be abused… I had injuries / I did things I did not want / I was too scared to say it "But now I think the time has come."

"I had to take a break when I was writing this song and I wanted to cry because it was so revealing. And it's just the truth. I do not know how to explain this, but all the songs on the album give the feeling of a specific period, because they have the same feeling that they had when I wrote them and created them ", he explains.

"It's so funny that it will give other people the feeling of a specific moment that will be so different from mine. This is such a weird, weird thing to understand. And I love it. I love it. That is the reason why I am doing this ", he continues.

Regarding the reaction that her fans will hope to have on her new album "Happier Than Ever", Billie Eilish comments: "I hope they break up with their partners because of this album. And I hope they do not take advantage of it. "
