Global tech and media giant Apple is launching the original feature documentary, Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry, this February across its subscription streaming service, Apple TV+.

Directed by award-winning filmmaker R.J. Cutler (BelushiThe September Issue), the feature-length film will document the meteoric rise of the American singer-songwriter (pictured) and the release of her debut studio album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? in 2019.

The album marked Eilish’s arrival as a force in the music industry after claiming numerous honors on the world’s biggest stage. At the 62nd Grammy Awards in January, before the global pandemic took hold, Eilish was feted with Best New Artist, Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album nods.

The Apple Original Film is produced in association with Interscope Films, Darkroom, This Machine and Lighthouse Management & Media.

Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry will is expected to premiere in theaters and on Apple TV+ in February 2021. The film will now sit alongside Apple TV+’s stable of documentaries that currently includes Bryce Dallas Howard’s Dads, Spike Jonze’s Beastie Boys Story and Amanda McBaine and Jesse Moss’ Boys State.
