It arrived after a not-so-subtle hint on Instagram last night
Halsey has announced details of her third album, ‘Manic’ today and has shared a new song – ‘Graveyard’. You can listen to the song and stream the album below.
It comes after Halsey broadcast herself painting onto a canvas in what appears to be a promotional stunt for her third album, ‘Manic’.
The ‘Without Me’ singer gave fans less than a 30-minute warning last night (September 12) that they would be able to watch a video or stream music at 1.17pm PST (9.17pm BST) via manicthealbum.com.
Soon after, Halsey has announced that her next album will be released on January 17 via Capitol. You can listen to the new song here:
Halsey, who has bipolar disorder, revealed to Rolling Stone in June that she had written an entire album while in a manic state.
The album is a sampling of “hip-hop, rock, country, fucking everything — because it’s so manic. It’s soooooo manic,” she said. “It’s literally just, like, whatever the fuck I felt like making; there was no reason I couldn’t make it.”
She added that the previously untitled ‘Manic’, which follows 2015’s ‘Badlands’ and 2017’s ‘Hopeless Fountain Kingdom’, is an “exploration of l’appel du vide, which is French for ‘the call of the void’.
“It’s that thing in the back of our minds that drives us to outrageous thoughts. Like when you’re driving a car and you’re like [she mimics cutting the wheel], or you’re on top of a building, and you’re like, ‘What if I just jump?’ You are controlled by those impulses rather than logic and reason.”
Fans may deduce that Halsey’s live stunt is an artistic representation of the experience of being in a manic state.
Speaking at the Capitol Congress conference in Hollywood, the 24-year-old pop star discussed her upcoming 25th birthday, saying: “I didn’t think I was going to be alive that long.”
