Billie Eilish has revealed details of her highly anticipated third studio album, HIT ME HARD AND SOFT which will see its global release on May 17 via Darkroom/Interscope Records.

Her most daring body of work to date, HIT ME HARD AND SOFT is said to be a diverse yet cohesive collection of songs, ideally listened to in its entirety from beginning to end. The album does exactly as the title suggests: hits you hard and soft both lyrically and sonically while bending genres and defying trends along the way.

HIT ME HARD AND SOFT journeys through a vast and expansive audio landscape, immersing listeners into a full spectrum of emotions.

HIT ME HARD AND SOFT was written by Billie Eilish and FINNEAS, her brother and long-time collaborator, who also produced the album. HIT ME HARD AND SOFT will be available on all digital platforms, and in a continued effort to minimize waste and combat climate change, across all physical formats in limited variants on the same day, with the same tracklisting and using 100% recyclable materials.

The star had been working on the follow-up to 2021’s Happier Than Ever and told fans in December 2023 that it was “almost done.”

Eilish shared the news in an Instagram caption alongside four photos of herself wearing a black balaclava with a white star pattern on it. “My album is mastered,” she wrote in the caption.

The pop star shared some insight into the making of the album in recent months. Last August, Eilish appeared on Dua Lipa’s At Your Service podcast and discussed how her creative process had changed for her third album.

“Everything is different about it,” Eilish said. “The way that I exist in the room is different; my voice has completely changed since then…The voice-changing thing is a trip! It’s all kind of shocking.”
