Apple TV+ has dropped the first trailer for their Billie Eilish documentary, Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry. After much speculation, news of the documentary was finally confirmed earlier this year with R. J. Cutler at the helm.
The documentary follows Billie Eilish as she ‘records and tours the album that changed her life’. It refers to Eilish’s album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? The album won in all four major categories at the 62nd Grammy Awards, making Eilish the first woman in history to achieve this feat.
The trailer stitches together clips from Eilish’s teenage years, recording sessions, and behind-the-scenes tour footage with interviews from people in her immediate circle, such as friends and family.
It prefaces the subject of the documentary — Eilish — with uncanny awareness of how young she is, comparing it with her numerous achievements in such a short span of time. In the beginning of the trailer, she passes her driver’s test, followed by a clip of her in her parents’ bedroom.
“This is my parents’ bed, and I sleep in here because I’m afraid of the monsters in my room.” she says. Elsewhere, she excitedly talks about finally getting her ‘dream car’, while her parents preach ‘safety first’.
It’s all contrasted by her characteristic precociousness, as she asks someone: “Why can’t we just miss people though? Why do we have to cope? Why can’t we just let it happen?”
In another moment, she talks to the crowd at a show: “I just want us all to be in the moment for this song, because I feel like in life we tend to do things, and then, we’re always looking forward to the next thing. We’re never thinking about what’s happening right now.”

“And this is happening right now,” she says. “We are never going to be in this moment ever again.”
