Discussing ‘At The Door’, Eilish said that she wishes she could put their whole album as her first choice.

Eilish made history when she topped triple j’s Hottest 100 at the beginning of this year with ‘Bad Guy’, becoming the first solo female artist and the youngest artist ever to do so.

The singer recently cancelled her ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ world tour, telling fans, “we’ve tried as many different scenarios as possible for the tour but none are possible.”
