Billie Eilish is giving fans a sneak peek at her fast-approaching new album, Hit Me Hard and Soft, by debuting a snippet of one of its lovey-dovey tracks, “Birds of a Feather,” in a brand-new teaser for Netflix’s Heartstopper season three.

In the clip posted Monday (May 13), Joe Locke’s Charlie practices telling Kit Connor’s Nick that he loves him, but struggles to find the words. As tension builds, the 22-year-old pop star’s track — which plays throughout the minute-long teaser — gets louder and louder, culminating in a vibrant, upbeat chorus that finds the nine-time Grammy winner belting with full force.

“I love you ’til the day that I die, ’til the day that I die,” she sings. “‘Til the light leaves my eyes. Forever, it’s even better.”

The clip is one of the first tastes of Hit Me Hard and Soft fans have gotten ahead of the album’s arrival, which is slated for Friday (May 17). Eilish hasn’t released any singles in anticipation of her third studio LP, telling fans on social media when she first announced the project, “i wanna give it to you all at once.”

She has, however, teased that the record is something of a return to the sound and style she cultivated on her 2019 debut. “I feel like this album is me,” she told Rolling Stone in April. “It’s not a character. It feels like the When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? version of me … This whole process has felt like I’m coming back to the girl that I was. I’ve been grieving her.”

This season of Heartstopper, which is based off the book series of the same name by Alice Oseman, is set to premiere on Netflix in October. The eight-episode installment will pick up with Charlie and Nick getting ready to start the school year at the end of summer holidays.

“As they learn more about each other and their relationships, plan social events and parties and start thinking about university choices,” reads the press release. “Everyone must learn to lean on those they love when life doesn’t go to plan.”
