Billie Eilish has partnered with Apple for her upcoming documentary titled Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry.
It is set to premiere in February 2021 in theatres and on Apple’s streaming platform Apple TV+. The World’s a Little Blurry was directed by American filmmaker RJ Cutler, who previously helmed 2009’s The September Issue, a feature-length documentary that follows Vogue’s renowned editor Anna Wintour. Eilish’s new docu is expected to chronicle the pop star’s rise to fame and the making of her critically acclaimed debut album, 2019’s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?.
According to Deadline, Apple purchased the documentary for a whopping eight figures. The film was made in association with Interscope Films, Darkroom, This Machine and Lighthouse Management & Media.
The announcement of The World’s a Little Blurry also arrived alongside a 30-second teaser, which features home video footage of a young Eilish at the piano and smiling toward the camera.
The World’s a Little Blurry is the second music documentary premiering on Apple TV+, following the Beastie Boys doc, Beastie Boys Story, which was released in April.
According to Eilish’s brother and frequent collaborator Finneas, the follow-up to When We All Fall Asleep… will not be land during the coronavirus pandemic.
“Billie’s album, and my album, they won’t be a bummer COVID record. I have a desperate desire not to release them during COVID-19. It’s the vaccine record,” he told Australian newspaper The Herald Sun. “I want it to be the album everyone’s out dancing in the streets to.”
