Having yesterday revealed that she’ll release a new album called Happier Than Ever in July, today Billie Eilish delivers the first taste of what it beholds in the form of “Your Power”.
The dream team of Eilish and brother FINNEAS are on top form again, but far from the world-beating pop single we may have expected to announce the new album, “Your Power” is an intimate acoustic song. Eilish’s voice is tender and full of quivers as she roves through subtle details abotu a relationship gradually falling apart. FINNEAS adds a few bass synth burbles, but doesn’t disrupt the song’s glistening flow. We’ve heard Eilish sing ballads before, but few as angelically pained as “Your Power” – with 16 tracks on Happier Than Ever we can hardly expect it to be an indicator of what the entirety will sound like, but we’re certainly intrigued.
