Billie Eilish has released new song "Lost Cause," the fourth single from her upcoming sophomore album Happier Than Ever, along with a self-directed accompanying music video.
In the visual, Eilish enlists a girl squad for a mansion party consisting of Twister, silly string, and an abundance of dancing on elevated surfaces. While drinking bottled sodas in the kitchen and dancing in matching blue satin pajamas, the 19-year-old musician airs her grievances on a former relationship at the track’s chorus.
"You ain’t nothing but a lost cause/And this ain’t nothing like it once was," she sings over laid-back jazz instruments. "I know you think you’re such an outlaw/But you got no job." The video concludes with the group laughing and running off-screen, before the screen turns to black for its remaining 22 seconds.
Happier Than Ever will hit streaming platforms on July 30, courtesy of Darkroom/Interscope Records. "Lost Cause" will appear on the 16-track album alongside previously released singles "my future," "Therefore I Am" and "Your Power." The new tracklist follows Eilish’s 2019 debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?.
Eilish also announced a 2022 world tour for the new album, with the American and Canadian leg set to kick off on February 3 at New Orleans’ Smoothie King Center and close with a three-night residency at the Forum in Los Angeles, from April 6 to April 9. She will then head to Europe and the U.K. in the summer. Prior to embarking on the tour, Eilish will headline several music festivals, including Firefly, Governors Ball and Austin City Limits.
