Filmed at the iconic Hollywood Bowl with Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the unpresendented Disney+ Original special will include all sixteen tracks from Eilish's new album, performed in order.
GRAMMY® Award-winning and chart-topping artist Billie Eilish will make her Disney+ Hotstar debut with "Happier than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles," a cinematic concert experience, premiering globally on Friday, September 3rd.
Fresh off the heels of her brand-new album, "Happier than Ever," the Disney+ Hotstar original will feature an intimate performance of every song in the album's sequential order – for the first and only time – from the stage of the legendary Hollywood Bowl.
Directed by Robert Rodriguez and by Oscar-winner Patrick Osborne the special will also include animated elements, taking viewers on a dreamlike journey through Billie’s hometown of Los Angeles and its most iconic backdrops.
“Happier than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles” features FINNEAS, the Los Angeles Children's Chorus, the Los Angeles Philharmonic conducted by Music & Artistic Director Gustavo Dudamel, and world renowned Brazilian guitarist, Romero Lubambo, with Orchestra Arrangements by David Campbell.
“Happier than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles” was produced by Interscope Films and Darkroom Productions, in associate with Nexus Studios and Aron Levine Productions, with Kerry Asmussen as the Live Concert Director and Pablo Berron as Director of Photography.
“Disney is incredibly iconic, so to collaborate on something like this is a huge honor," said artist Billie Eilish. "To be able to present my album in this way and dedicate it to the city that I love and grew up in is so exciting to me. I hope you love it.”
As seven time GRAMMY® Award-winning artist Billie Eilish prepares for the July 30th, 2021 release of her highly anticipated sophomore album "Happier Than Ever," the 19-year-old Los Angeles native remains one of the biggest stars to emerge in the 21st century.
Eilish's breakout album, "WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in the U.S as well as 17 additional countries around the world upon release in 2019, and was the most streamed album of that year.
She later went on to make history that year as the youngest artist to receive nominations and wins in all the major categories at the 62nd GRAMMY® Awards.
Most recently, she took home both Record of the Year for "everything i wanted," and Best Song Written For Visual Media for "No Time To Die" at this year's 63rd Annual GRAMMY® Awards. Eilish’s forthcoming album ‘Happier Than Ever’ was written by Billie and her brother FINNEAS, who also produced the album.
We can't wait for this one!
