Upcoming Billie Eilish documentary goes back in time to before her hit album swept the Grammys
"Billie Eilish: The World's A Little Blurry," from filmmaker R.J. Cutler, drops Feb. 26 on the streaming service. A trailer for the doc, released Tuesday, shows the pop music sensation, then 17, as she writes, records and eventually releases "When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?"
The March 2019 album led to Eilish's domination of the 2020 Grammys, where she took home the four biggest awards, becoming only the second artist to do so — and the youngest.

She won the album, record and song of the year categories as well as best new artist — the first singer to do so since Christopher Cross in 1981. Eilish also took home the gilded gramophone for best pop vocal album.
The trailer shows Eilish undergoing some of the traditional rites of passage for a teen, such as passing her driving test and getting a car.
"We passed the test," she says while dancing outside the DMV. "You can drive now!"
She also confesses she still sleeps in her parents' bed because she's scared of monsters.
But, it's Billie Eilish, so while she's learning how to drive she's also performing for crowds and attending awards shows. Later in the trailer, we see the singer addressing a packed crowd at one of her (pre-pandemic) performances.
"You guys need to be OK because y'all are the reason I'm OK, OK?" she tells them.
