After taking to New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art to unveil the stunning artwork for her fourth studio album If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power, Platinum selling hitmaker Halsey has announced an accompanying hour-long film experience soundtracked by the songs off the album.
Directed by Colin Tilley and written by the musician, the film is set to capture the conceptual nature of the record, focusing on pregnancy and childbirth whilst juxtaposing themes of love and power. The singer shared an official trailer for the project, which is set to run in select cities and theatres worldwide, including IMAX showings.
Produced by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross of Nine Inch Nails If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power was written entirely by the singer, and is set to document "the joys and horrors of pregnancy and childbirth." Halsey is currently expecting her first child with her partner, screenwriter Alev Aydin.
Halsey has surpassed 60 million RIAA-certified units across albums, singles and features, and has sold over 150 million adjusted singles. 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.
If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power is out August 27! Watch the trailer below.
