Taking to Instagram to share the artwork again, she wrote: "“Happier Than Ever” my sophomore album is finally out. i can’t even process it. this was the most fulfilling most satisfying and profound experience i’ve ever had with my music. finneas and i were just on cloud 9 making this album i feel.. i love every song on this project so so much it literally scares me thinking about putting it out into the world for anyone to listen to. i feel like crying. i grew so much in the process of making this album and experienced so much self realization and self reflection. i wish i could go back and make this album all over again because it was some of the best nights in my life. i love you @finneas thank you for being you. i couldn’t ask for a better brother and collaborator, you are my whole world and i couldn’t do any of this without you. anyway i’m so excited and nervous and blaaah… please take care of this project, it means the world to me. 🤍 I CANT BELIEVE ITTTT".

The album cover marks a new era for Eilish, seeing her ditch her black and green hair for bombshell blonde tresses.

The GRAMMY AWARD-winning singer also loses her long acrylic nails for the soft and ethereal artwork, which sees her swaddled in cream knitwear as a single tear falls down her cheek.

The album follows her smash hit, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? album, which included the singles Bad Guy, Bellyache and When The Party's Over.
