Is Billie Eilish the radical saviour pop needs?

Description

In 2018 singer Billie Eilish released her debut album ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’


With it the teenager pretty much immediately changed the face and sound of modern pop music.


Her album won all four of the major categories at the Grammy awards that year. The first time that’s happened since 1981.


Her hit Bad Guy took out the top spot on the Hottest 100, making her both the youngest person to win the countdown and the first solo female artist.


Now, she’s back, with her follow up second record: ‘Happier Than Ever’.


It’s a very different sounding album, and it feels like a response to the immense pressure and scrutiny she’s faced since becoming a pop superstar. 


To talk about it, and the way Billie Eilish is reshaping the music industry around herself, we’re joined on the show by music critic for The Saturday Paper, Shaad D’Souza.
