Billie Eilish recently released her sophomore album titled 'Happier Than Ever' and fans can't stop listening to it. The 19-year-old songstress has penned sixteen new tracks for the album that hit the internet on July 30, 2021 and one of them is the melancholy 'Halley's Comet' song.
This song is a sweet, little romantic song but underneath it all there's evidently this sentiment of concern or restlessness based on what has emotionally transpired in the narrator's life.
Halley's Comet is named after English astronomer Edmond Halley, who discovered the comet in 1602. The comet comes near to the Earth every 75 – 76 years, so lucky individuals can catch it twice during their lives.
It seems like the singer is using Halley's Comet as a metaphor for how infrequent she "comes around" and it's not the first time she has done so on her new album.
The lyrics of this song are very poignant and they really show how she has changed as an artist. She was going through some very tough times before she started to become the star that she is today, but her music has helped her get through all those difficult times.
'Halley's Comet' also shows how much she's learned from her past relationships and how she's trying to avoid making the same mistake again.
This song is very different from all her other albums because it's a lot more upbeat and happy but there are still some hints of the cynical stance that she had in her earlier releases.
