When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (stylized in all uppercase) is the upcoming debut studio album by American singer Billie Eilish, set to be released on March 29, 2019. The songs "You Should See Me in a Crown" and "When the Party's Over" were released as the first two singles from the album. The third single, "Bury a Friend", was released with the album pre-order on January 30, 2019. The fourth single, "Wish You Were Gay", was released on March 4, 2019. Most of the album's tracks, except for a few, were written during the Don't Smile at Me era. These songs were supposed to be part of an album that was supposed to be released in the summer of 2017.
