The buzz around Billie Eilish is high right now as the pop artist recently announced that her sophomore album Happier Than Ever is scheduled to release on July 30, 2021. To coincide with this news, the singer-songwriter has also blessed us with the first single off of the impending record entitled “Your Power” along with its moody visual.

The tune itself is somber, vulnerable and metaphoric all in one. Produced entirely by her brother FINNEAS, the track features a stripped-back instrumental of raw acoustic guitar and is paired with faint synth towards the latter half. As its namesake suggests, it’s symbolic of all the men who abuse their power across the music industry, especially towards younger women. The captivating music video kicks off with an aerial view of a mountain rage in Simi Valley, CA, and gradually zooms in on Eilish and her freshly blonde hair where she is spotted dressed in earthy tones and boots with overlapping laces. Around the 1:24 mark, an 80 pound anaconda starts to slither onto her lap. As the song progresses, the gargantuan creature starts to wrap itself around her body until it eventually “silences” her voice — a cinematic visual that perfectly encapsulates the theme of the song.

When the song dropped, the 19-year old crooner took to IG to state, “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.”

Elsewhere in music, Lana Del Rey recently announced the release date of her next album Blue Banisters.
