Billie Eilish flirts with '80s pop in 'Birds of a Feather'

This Friday, May 17, 'Hit Me Hard and Soft', Billie Eilish's new album, is released. It is the successor to 'Happier than Ever' (2021) and Eilish has decided to release it without the support of any advance single.

But the content of 'Hit Me Hard and Soft' has been emerging in other ways. Eilish has shown several songs from the album at a Coachella party. And, now, one of them sounds in the trailer for the third season of 'Heartstopper', which premieres on October 3.

The chosen song is 'Birds of a Feather'. And the preview reveals a new sound for Eilish, uptempo and close to synth-pop and eighties radio pop. The ASMR pop of Eilish's debut seems like a thing of the past, at least in this still unreleased production. In a few days, complete album.

We remind you that the world tour of 'Hit Me Hard and Soft' will pass through Spain in 2025, with two dates in Barcelona on June 14 and 15.

Of course, the return of 'Heartstopper', one of the best series in recent years, is also worth mentioning.
