Billie Eilish has returned with a brand-new song.
The seven-time Grammy-winning pop star, 19, unveiled the dreamy music video for her latest single, “Your Power.” The track is one of sixteen new songs set to appear on her long-awaited and highly-anticipated sophomore album, Happier Than Ever, which is due to release on July 30 via Interscope Records.
In the four-minute music video, Eilish, wearing her bold blonde hair — a noticeable shift from her slime green-and-black era — perches from the mountainside as she sings the guitar-laden ballad before a massive snake suddenly slowly begins to wrap itself around her.
In the song, the musician cautions those with power not to take advantage of others. "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," Eilish croons on the record's dreamy chorus.
"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," she said of the song on Instagram. "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."
“Your Power” is the newest track from the singer following the 2020 singles “My Future” and “Therefore I Am,” which all appear on Happier Than Ever. Her most recent release came in January with her Rosalía-assisted bilingual collab "Lo Vas A Olvidar."
The song comes just days after Eilish shared the stunning cover artwork for her upcoming LP, which sees the young phenom striking a damsel’s pose in a cream-colored sweater.
