Billie Eilish‘s “Your Power” is a stunning, stripped-back ballad that finds the superstar at her most vulnerable.
On Thursday (April 29), the “My Future” singer released her latest single and music video. The song features country-inspired, acoustic-leaning production that delicately cushions Eilish’s ethereal vocals.
The self-directed music video begins with an aerial view of mountains before the viewer finds a newly blonde Eilish sitting on a mountain, serenading the listener. As the video progresses, Eilish is seen sitting on the same mountain with a snake wrapping around her neck. The video concludes with another aerial shot that shows Eilish being constricted.

According to Elish, the song 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.”
The new single is off of her upcoming sophomore record, Happier Than Ever, which drops July 30.
“This is my favorite thing I’ve ever created and I am so excited and nervous and EAGER for you to hear it,” Eilish wrote alongside the initial album announcement. “I can’t even tell you. I’ve never felt so much love for a project than I do for this one. hope you feel what I feel.”

Try not to abuse your power
I know you didn’t choose to change
You might not want to lose your power
But having it is so strange
She said you are a hero, you played the part
But you ruined her in a year, don’t act like it was hard
And you swear you didn’t know
No wonder why you didn’t ask
She was sleeping in your clothes
But now she’s got to get to class, how dare you?
And how could you?
Will you only feel bad when they find out?
If you could take it all back
I thought that I was special
You made me feel like it was my fault you were the devil
Lost your appeal
Does it keep you in control? (In control)
For you to keep her in a cage?
And you swear you didn’t know (Didn’t know)
You said you thought she was your angel
How dare you?
And how could you?
Will you only feel bad if it turns out
That they kill your contract?
