Billie Eilish's new album has been mastered

The 22-year-old singer has given a major update on her highly anticipated third studio record, and suggested fans don't have much longer to wait.

Alongside photos of herself in a black balaclava with white stars, she wrote on Instagram: "My album is mastered."

A record being mastered is typically at the end of the recording process, although Billie is yet to offer further details about the collection.

It will be her third effort after 2019 debut 'When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?', and follow up 'Happier Than Ever' two years later.

She also released two-track EP 'Guitar Songs' in 2022, and dropped 'What Was I Made For?' on last year's 'Barbie' soundtrack.

Back in September, Billie confirmed there was "lots of music coming" as she teased the upcoming album.

She told The Cookout: "There is lots of music coming. There is a whole album of music coming.

"We’re in the final stages of making it, so that doesn’t mean it’s about to come out, but it is getting there, and it’s very exciting.”

Three months later, she again stayed tight lipped but did reveal the LP was "almost done".

Appearing on 'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon', she said: "We are almost done with this new album. So, at some point, you will know more, but I’m not gonna say anything right now."

Billie was creatively reinvigorated by 'What Was I Made For?', having convinced herself "it was over" after her second album.

She recalled during a songwriter roundtable: "We’d been trying and it wasn’t doing what it usually would do in me. I was honestly like, ‘Damn, maybe I hit my peak and I don’t know how to write anymore?’ "

A phone call from 'Barbie' director Greta Gerwig - and a request to write a song for the soundtrack - was the push she needed.

She added: “Greta saved me, really, honestly. It brought us out of it and immediately we were inspired and wrote so much more after that.”
