Billie Eilish announced on Tuesday, April 27, that her new album, “Happier Than Ever” is set to release July 30. The album will be recognized as Eilish’s sophomore album, following her previous album, “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” and her 2017-released EP, “Don’t Smile At Me.”

“This is my favorite thing I’ve ever created, and I am so excited and nervous and eager for you to hear it,” Eilish said on her Instagram post, announcing the album and a new track. “I can’t even tell you. I’ve never felt so much love for a project than I do for this one.”

Eilish broke pop, radio and mainstream records following the release of her single “Bad Guy,” which won three Grammys alongside Eilish’s seven others. Since her “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” album hit No. 1 on the majority of charts, Eilish has teased upcoming work alongside various singles such as “Therefore I Am” and her Euphoria-based track with Spanish-star Rosalia, “Lo Vas A Olvidar.”

Eilish released her new single to preview her upcoming album on Thursday, April 29. The track, “Your Power,” also featured a music video and already scored a No. 1 position in Spotify’s “Top Hits” playlist.

Featured in the video, Eilish can be seen sitting near a mountain ledge as a snake slowly wraps around her neck while the video progresses.

“She said you were a hero / You played the part / But you ruined her in a year / Don’t act like it was hard,” Eilish sings over the guitar-based instrumentals. Many fans speculate that this song is a reference to her past relationship with rapper Brandon Quention Adams.

The video dropped for fans and listeners alike at 12 p.m. eastern time, receiving over 100,000 views within 30 minutes.
