Fresh off the release of her second studio album, Happier Than Ever, Billie Eilish just released an inviting live performance for “Male Fantasy.” The soft and somber song appears as the concluding track on her recent album, which has been met with widespread praise.

In the video, Eilish sits on a cream-colored satin bed with a gold padded comforter. Covered in a casual outfit, her voice’s famous whisper cadence flows into a black microphone, filling the amber-colored vintage hotel room surrounding her. On the other side of the room is her brother Finneas, who strums a white acoustic guitar while sitting on top of an ivory dresser.

The performance was shot on 35mm film, offering a smooth-grained overlay. The song deals with loneliness after a break-up. But what’s more powerful is the song’s message about healing from this situation. “Can’t get over you, no matter what I do/I know I should, but I could never hate you,” echoes the song’s final lines.

Recently, the alternative pop star survived a flood in her recent music video for “Happier Than Ever,” which appears as the penultimate track on the new album. Eilish is seen talking on the phone with presumably an ex-lover before things go awry and an ocean’s worth of water rushes into her home. After swimming out of the house, she finds herself situated on the rooftop belting the song’s edgy lyrics as the rain pours down.

Check out the live performance for “Male Fantasy” above.

In related news, Billie Eilish’s Happier Than Ever is projected to debut at No. 1 on next week’s Billboard 200 chart.
