On Monday, Billie Eilish posted a photo on Instagram in a sweatshirt with the festival logo and the caption “2022”. Later, the singer’s participation in the event was confirmed by the organizers, emphasizing that the 20-year-old will be “the youngest solo headliner in Glastonbury’s history”. – It’s the perfect way to come back and I can’t wait! – emphasized Emily Eavis, the festival’s organizer, quoted by the BBC.
Eilish will also be the first female headliner since 2016. In 2020, it was supposed to be Taylor Swift, but the event was canceled due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, the Glastonbury festival was online. During the event, there were, among others, Coldplay, Wolf Alice and Jorja Smith.
Eilish created the title song for “Nie Czas dyać”
Billie Eilish had already performed at Glastonbury in 2019, but was not the main star of the festival then. In July, the singer released her second album – “Happier Than Ever”. The first single announcing the new album debuted at number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, and in two weeks after its premiere it had over 150 million streams.
Eilish also made history as the youngest artist to receive Grammy nominations and awards in four of the most important categories: Best New Artist, Album of the Year, Record of the Year, and Song of the Year. Additionally, she received an award in the Best Pop Vocal Album category. Billie also turned out to be the youngest artist to write and record the theme for the latest James Bond movie, “It’s not time to die.”
