Platinum selling hitmaker Halsey has officially announced her highly-anticipated fourth studio album, If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power. The musician has also shared a snippet of a brand new track across her social media platforms.
Announced via a billboard in Los Angeles, the singer revealed the record is produced by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross of Nine Inch Nails, hinting towards a heavier sonic exploration from the genre-defying artist. Halsey has made her foray into rock infused genres with her singles Nightmare, Experiment On Me, and her collaborations with Yungblud, Bring Me The Horizon and Machine Gun Kelly.
Whilst the singer has yet to share the finer details of the record, earlier this year eagle-eyed fans spotted an Instagram account followed by the singer, with a link leading to a mysterious webpage. That website had previously been attached to the singers anniversary website for her debut album, Badlands. Fast-forward through dozens of Easter eggs, including a telling Twitter bio which wrote “LPIV”, fans theories were finally confirmed with todays announcement.
The singer last played to Aussie fans in December 2019, headlining Falls Festival, prior to the release of her Platinum selling album, Manic in 2020. The record peaked at number 2 on the ARIA official album charts. The singer kicked off her Manic World Tour in February this year in Europe. The remainder of the tour has now been postponed until June 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, Halsey has launched her own makeup range, about-face beauty, and released her debut collection of poetry, I Would Leave Me If I Could.
