'Hit Me Hard and Soft,' Billie Eilish's highly anticipated new album, will be released next month.

NEW YORK  — A highly awaited third studio album by Billie Eilish, titled "Hit Me Hard and Soft," is scheduled to be published on May 17th, according to an announcement made by the artist on Monday.  

The information was disseminated on the social media platform Instagram, where Eilish posted the album artwork that depicted the pop singer floating in a body of water after being thrown out of a door. Within the caption, she stated that she will not be releasing any singles prior to the release of the album.

The message that she added to the picture said, "I want to give it to you all at once." "This album is truly something that I could not be more proud of."  

The song "Hit Me Hard and Soft" was a collaboration between Eilish and her brother Finneas, who has been a longtime collaborator. The duet has recently won their second Academy Award for their major song "What Was I Made For?  

which was used in the "Barbie" film. When she did this, Eilish, who is 22 years old, became the youngest person in history to have won two Oscars in their career.  

Eilish signed a new open letter that was submitted by the nonprofit organization Artist Rights Alliance earlier this month.  

The letter urged AI tech companies, developers, platforms, digital music services, and platforms to stop using artificial intelligence "to infringe upon and devalue the rights of human artists." Eilish's signature was included in the letter.  

It was said in a press release issued by Eilish that all of the physical versions of "Hit Me Hard and Soft" will have the same tracklist and will be constructed out of materials that are completely recyclable.
