Billie Eilish has dropped “Lost Cause,” yet another new single from her sophomore album Happier Than Ever.
Over a sparse beat lead by tight basslines and airy keys, she wryly looks back a disappointing former partner. “Thought you had your shit together, but damn, I was wrong / You ain’t nothin’ but a lost cause / And this ain’t nothin’ like it oncе was / I know you think you’re such an outlaw / But you got no job,” she sings.
Released on June 2, the “Lost Cause” video—directed by Eilish herself—takes on a significantly brighter tone compared to her past visuals. In the clip, she dances and goofs off in a joyous house party with her friends, playing darts, video games and Twister.
“YEEEEEEEEE 😭 we had the time of our lives being hot & shooting this heeheeeeeehee🤗🤗🤗🤗 ENJOY LOL,” Eilish wrote on Instagram upon the video’s release.
Happier Than Ever, Eilish’s follow-up to her 2019 debut, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, is due for release on July 30. Watch the “Lost Cause” music video here:
