Billie Eilish – “Your Power”

Kelia Anne MacCluskey

Technically, “Your Power” is not the lead single from Billie Eilish’s newly announced album Happier Than Ever. The album includes two songs she released last year: the jazzy, well received ballad “my future” and the contemptuous multi-format radio hit “Therefore I Am.” However, “Your Power” is the first song Eilish has released since announcing the new album, debuting her new look, and officially commencing her LP2 era, so there’s definitely a deep sense of anticipations around the song.

Eilish teased “Your Power” this week with a brief sound snippet featuring acoustic guitar and the words “Try not to use your power” sung to a Feist-y melody. Now the full song and its Eilish-directed music video have arrived. The completed record remains as soft, pretty, and devastatingly sad as the preview audio. In the clip, a slow pan across a mountainside in the Simi Valley reveals Eilish in the clutches of a gigantic snake. (A press release specifies that it’s an 80-pound anaconda.) Watch below.

Happier Than Ever is out 7/30 on Darkroom/Interscope.
