You think you’re an overachiever? In 2019, Billie Eilish won Best New Artist at the AMAs, a People’s Choice Award and two Teen Choice Awards. She was named Apple Music’s Artist of the Year and Billboard’s Woman of the Year. Now -- deep breath -- she’s the star of an upcoming feature documentary, detailing the making of her smash-hit debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? She's busy!

Back in November, Billie talked to i-D about the short documentary she shot with Beats by Dre as part of her role as the face of the Beats Solo Pro campaign. The video takes us through the creation of the haunting single “everything i ever wanted”, letting us into and around Billie’s sunlit family home in Highland Park, Los Angeles. Now, fans will be treated to a much deeper dive into the artist’s life.

The new documentary has apparently had all its footage shot already, and is set to be directed by filmmaker R.J. Cutler. In 2009, Cutler went behind the scenes at Vogue to make one of biggest fashion documentaries of the time. The September Issue revelled in the blood, sweat and tears that goes into Vogue’s most important annual dispatch, and offered an insight into the life of the inimitable powerhouse that is Anna Wintour. Cutler began his film career with the Oscar-nominated The War Room, which was a behind-the-scenes look into Bill Clinton’s first presidential campaign.

The film is set to premiere on Apple TV+ in 2020, but does not have an exact release date at this time. Until then, we'll be waiting with bated breath and remain in awe of Billie's pure stamina tbh.
