Watch Billie Eilish’s Self-Directed Video For New Single “NDA”
The latest teaser from the singers upcoming album
Billie Eilish has spoiled us with another taste of her much-anticipated sophomore album, Happier Than Ever, which is due to be released on July 30.
Just weeks before the big release, the Grammy-winning singer dropped new single along with visuals for “NDA”. The song marks the fifth single off Happier Than Ever.
“I can’t wait for this one,” she wrote in a teaser on Instagram. “One of my favourite videos I’ve directed”.
In the visual, which was shot in one take, Eilish can be seen walking alone in the middle of a busy road in the dark, as cars dangerously whizzing past her. There were no stunt doubles or visual effects for the vehicles, adding a sense of danger to the project.
In an interview with Rolling stone, Eilish discussed her mindset when creating the album and how she hopes it’ll effect the fans.
“I don’t know how to explain this, but all the songs on the album feel like a specific time, because they feel like when I wrote them and made them,” she explained. “It’s so funny that to the rest of the world it’s going to feel like a certain moment for them, and it’s going to be so different than mine. That’s such a weird, weird thing to wrap my head around. And I will fucking love it. I love it. That’s the reason you do this. It’s for that … I hope people break up with their boyfriends because of it. And I hope they don’t get taken advantage of.”
You can watch “NDA” in the video above. Happier Than Ever arrives on July 30 and will be supported by a world tour that kicks off next year.
