Hit Me Hard and Soft features the single "Lunch" and nine other songs: "Skinny," "Chihiro," "Birds of a Feather," "Wildflower," "The Greatest," "L'Amour de ma vie," "The Diner," "Bittersuite" and "Blue."

The album is co-written by Eilish and her brother, singer-songwriter and producer Finneas O'Connell.

Hit Me Hard and Soft is Eilish's first album in nearly three years, her first since the Grammy-nominated Happier Than Ever, released in July 2021.

Eilish and O'Connell won Grammys in March for "What Was I Made For?," their 2023 single for the Barbie movie.
