Billie Eilish’s 2022 tour dates are pretty much sold out at this point, but if you haven’t managed to score tickets, don’t fret. The “Your Power” singer has something special up her sleeve. Ahead of some fall festival dates, Eilish is dropping a live concert film exclusively on Disney+. Happier Than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles premieres September 3 and features Eilish performing every track from her upcoming sophomore album in order, apparently for the first and only time.

“Disney is incredibly iconic, so to collaborate on something like this is a huge honor,” Eilish said in a statement. “To be able to present my album in this way and dedicate it to the city that I love and grew up in is so exciting to me. I hope you love it.”

The “cinematic concert experience” was filmed onstage at the equally iconic Hollywood Bowl. Though no audience was present at the taping, Eilish shares the stage with her brother and collaborator Finneas, as well as the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Plus, the movie will apparently include animated elements that will take fans on “a dreamlike journey through Billie’s hometown of Los Angeles.” This is Disney, after all, so of course there’s animation.

This isn’t the first time Eilish has teamed with a streaming platform for a big release this year. In February, her documentary Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry debuted on AppleTV+. The film took fans behind the scenes of her meteoric rise to fame after the release of her debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? Now this new Disney+ film marks the beginning of a whole new era for the 19-year-old musical phenomenon.
