5 Songs From Billie Eilish’s “Hit Me Hard and Soft” You Should Hear ASAP

Billie Eilish has given us one of the spring’s best new albums with Hit Me Hard and Soft, a cohesive collection of 10 songs worth listening to on repeat. They’re all amazing in their own right, but these five grabbed our attention from the get-go, and you should hear them ASAP.


Eilish’s attraction to women is one of the central themes of her new album, but no song addresses it as directly as the catchy lead single “Lunch”.


Eilish has always been a huge fan of Studio Ghibli movies, and she paid homage to the Spirited Away heroine, Chihiro, with one of the album’s best and grooviest tracks.

“Birds of a Feather”

Featured in a recent Heartstopper teaser, “Birds of a Feather” has the potential to become one of the album’s most radio-friendly hits thanks to its brilliant lyrics that will resonate with everyone who’s ever experienced love and loss.

“L’Amour de Ma Vie”

Eilish’s willingness to get experimental and switch through different genres is one of the biggest strengths of Hit Me Hard and Soft, and “L’Amour de Ma Vie” exemplifies this better than any other song.


“Blue” is the final track on this album, and it neatly wraps it all together, while revisiting some of the themes and lyrics that shaped Hit Me Hard and Soft.
