Eilish is also strongly rumoured to be headlining next year’s Glastonbury Festival. It’s been noticed that the June shows lead right up to Glastonbury weekend. She’s now listed as ‘To Be Confirmed’ on the respected eFestivals forum and rumours list.

The shows are in support of her newly-released second album ‘Happier Than Ever’, which outsold the rest of the top 10 albums in the UK combined, to win Eilish her second UK Number One.

In a five-star review of the albumNME‘s El Hunt said: “Though it’s unlikely that her place among their ranks was ever in doubt anyway, ‘Happier Than Ever’ fully establishes Billie Eilish as one of her generation’s most significant pop artists – and, better still, does so without repeating a single trick from the debut that turned her life upside down.”
