Billie Eilish surprised fans this afternoon (July 18) when she dropped a new track called “You Should See Me in a Crown.”
The dark and dramatic cut is a follow up to her Khalid-assisted track “Lovely,” which was featured on the buzzed-about 13 Reasons Why: Season 2 soundtrack.

Billie Eilish is one of our favorite new artists and quickly on her way to being one of music’s most exciting new pop superstars, but she’s keeping things unpredictable. With no warning, Billie dropped a new song called “you should see me in a crown.” It comes with a visual (not the official music video) that shows spiders clambering over a crown, and that pretty much sums up the vibe of this record.

“you should see me in a crown” starts off at an ominous crawl, but snaps into a threat before the minute mark. As usual with Billie, it’s a gorgeously written song with a pop core and an unforgettable chorus, but dark undertones give it a dynamic edge.

The 16-year-old singer adopts a quiet-loud approach on the track, opening with muted electronics and building to a choruses with a booming hip-hop edge. Finneas O’Connell, her brother and frequent collaborator, produced the Eilish-penned track.

O’Connell has worked on many of the vocalist’s projects, including every track from her debut EP, 2017’s Don’t Smile at Me.
Eilish has yet to announce or detail her forthcoming debut LP. “You Should See Me in a Crown” follows her recent Khalid collaboration, “Lovely,” featured on the soundtrack to 13 Reasons Why Season Two.

[Verse 1]
Bite my tongue, bide my time
Wearing a warning sign
Wait ’til the world is mine
Visions I vandalize
Cold in my kingdom size
Fell for these ocean eyes

[Chorus]
You should see me in a crown
I’m gonna run this nothing town
Watch me make ’em bow
One by one by one
One by one by
You should see me in a crown
Your silence is my favorite sound
Watch me make ’em bow
One by one by one
One by one by one

[Verse 2]
Count my cards, watch them fall
Blood on a marble wall
I like the way they all
Scream
Tell me which one is worse
Living or dying first
Sleeping inside a hearse
I don’t dream

 

 

You say
Come over baby
I think you’re pretty
I’m okay
I’m not your baby
If you think I’m pretty

[Chorus]
You should see me in a crown
I’m gonna run this nothing town
Watch me make ’em bow
One by one by one
One by one by
You should see me in a crown
Your silence is my favorite sound
Watch me make ’em bow
One by one by one
One by one by one

[Chorus]
Crown
I’m gonna run this nothing town
Watch me make ’em bow
One by one by one
One by one by
You should see me in a crown
Your silence is my favorite sound
Watch me make ’em bow
One by one by one
One by one by one
