Billie Eilish is readying to release her first-ever book this spring. Simply titled Billie Eilish, the hardcover book will feature hundreds of photos hand-selected by the artist, taking fans on a visual journey through the young phenomenon’s life – from snapshots of her early childhood to behind-the-scenes moments on tour. The book hits stores May 11 via Grand Central Publishing in the US and Wren & Rook in the UK.
An accompanying audiobook will be released simultaneously, in which Eilish will share never-before-told stories and recollections from her personal life and career. The companion piece will also feature commentary from the artist’s parents, who share memories of their talented daughter.

In a press release, Eilish said, “I spent many hours over many months pouring through my family albums and archives, handpicking all of the photos in this book. I hope you love it as much as I do.”
Gretchen Young, Vice President and Executive Editor at Grand Central Publishing, commented that Eilish’s “unique combination of sophisticated artistic vision and tenacious creative energy shines through on every page, and the vibrant visual nature of how she has chosen to share herself and her truth captures perfectly the unassailable authenticity for which she is so beloved by her ever-growing legions of fans.”
Laura Horsley of Hachette UK added, “Rebellious, smart, innovative, and authentic, Billie is a global phenomenon and an inspiration to so many. This much-anticipated book will give us a glimpse at the person beyond the icon. Fans around the globe will devour it.”
Billie Eilish is currently available for preorder at Eilish’s website.
2021 is shaping up to be a busy year for Eilish. In just over a month, her hotly-anticipated documentary, Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry, is set to premiere exclusively on Apple TV+. Directed by award-winning filmmaker R.J. Cutler (The War Room, The September Issue, Nashville), the film will offer an intimate look at the singer-songwriter and her meteoric rise to global stardom.
Eilish, who is up for two awards at the Grammys this March, has also teased a follow-up to her best-selling debut, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
