Halsey is launching their new album ‘If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power’ with what they’re calling a “film experience”, and now they’ve released another new trailer.
Set to a yet-to-be-released song, presumably from the album in question, the trailer shows Halsey in a string of different scenarios. In one sequence, they wear Victorian-inspired clothing at the edge of a cliff, before entering a shack when someone with whited-out eyes grabs them.
They’re also shown walking from a throne in black-and-white make-up, exiting a room covered in bruises and blood, caressing their baby bump underwater and more.

The above trailer follows the release of the film’s initial trailer, where Halsey revealed that the film is about “the lifelong social labyrinth of sexuality and birth”.
Fans got the chance to hear another snippet of the album in an online, choose-your-own-adventure style game Halsey launched earlier this week.
When they revealed the artwork, which shows Halsey sitting on a throne with a baby in their lap, they said the album is a celebration of “pregnant and postpartum bodies”. Earlier this month, Halsey gave birth to their first child with partner Alev Aydin.
