Billie Eilish's new documentary The World's A Little Blurry officially has a release date.

In a trailer for the upcoming film, which will chronicle the life of the award-winning singer both off and on the stage, Eilish is seen performing, hanging out with her brother Finneas, learning how to drive (and celebrating passing with an impromptu dance) plus having candid, reflective conversations about the realities of life, death and missing people with her mother Maggie Baird.

During a car ride, Eilish asks her mother: 'Why can't we just miss people, why can't we just let it happen- why do we have to cope?' Maggie responds poignantly with a simple 'because it hurts.'

The trailer also shows never seen before footage of the writing, recording and production of Eilish's debut album 'WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?'

Viewers will be given a behind the scenes look at how Billie and Finneas created the now five - yes five- Grammy Award Winning album in the now infamous bedroom/recording studio at their parents house.

A very human side of the teen artist is presented too with Eilish admitting to the camera that she sleeps in her parents bed because she is 'scared of monsters'.

The trailer also feature other heartwarming moments including an adorable throwback home video footage of a pint size Eilish and Finneas. In the clip, they are both eagerly prepping for another 'show' while in another, Eilish's father bounces his baby Billie up and down on piano keys, both a a poignant foreshadowing of their current reality.

Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry was directed by R.J. Cutler and will premiere globally on Apple TV+ on February 26th.
