On Tuesday, Billie Eilish revealed that her anticipated sophomore album, Happier Than Ever, would be out later this year. The 18-year-old alt pop star also promised that she’d be releasing a new single on Thursday, aka today. And she did just that.
Titled “Your Power,” the song starts off with acoustic strumming and is a tender ballad that’s delicate compared to anything she’s released before.
Lyrics include “Try not to abuse your power / I know we didn’t choose to change / You might not wanna lose your power / But having it’s so strange.”
Check out the video, which was directed by Eilish herself (her fourth self-directed video overall) and shot in Simi Valley, California, below.
‘”Your Power’ song and video out now. this is one of my favorite songs i’ve ever written. i feel very vulnerable putting this one out because i hold it so close to my heart. this is about many different situations that we’ve all either witnessed or experienced. i hope this can inspire change. try not to abuse your power,” Eilish wrote in an Instagram post.
Happier Than Ever is out on July 30 via Darkroom/Interscope.
