With that out of the way, you'd think that the 74th Heardle would be related to the Irish singer, but you'd be wrong. If it's any consolation, today's Heardle is a rock song. Not just that, but it's the best-selling single of the band that performed it.
Of course, that isn't much of a clue now, is it?
If you're new to Heardle, it's no different from Wordle, which, just got a new Word for the day. The main difference here is that Heardle is about trying to guess the song title and artist of each day in six tries. Your main clue is one second of the intro and you'll unlock more of the song each time you fail.
Speaking of failing, you'll want to keep an eye out for how many guesses you've made. If you're close to your final try and would like to keep a streak going, we've got you covered.
