"This record is about understanding your worth"
Halsey has shared a new song called ‘Without Me’ – her first solo material since 2017.
The song premiered as Zane Lowe’s ‘World Record’ on his Apple Music Beats 1 show today (October 4).
The American singer, who last year scored a number one in the Billboard 200 for her second album ‘Hopeless Fountain Kingdom’, explained in a statement what the track is about.
“Questioning your purpose and your effort in a relationship can be confusing and draining. But it’s important to self-reflect and know your worth and value,” she said.
“This record is about understanding your worth. It’s a very honest record. And it helped me prove to myself that I can still manifest my feelings into art after all this time. My music will always be the vehicle that carries my heart.”
Last month, Halsey teased the new single with a short video that showed flashing images of the singer under pouring water. Lyrics including, “Said I’d catch you if you fall” and “Does it ever get lonely?” pop up on screen.
The ‘Bad At Love’ singer will join Benny Blanco and Khalid at the American Music Awards on October 9 for a performance of the trio’s hit collaboration, ‘Eastside’.
When a fan asked if she would play herself or a fictional character, she replied: “I play myself for a very small moment! Which is insane because it means Gaga and Bradley saw me worthy of representing a piece of the current state of music in this film forever.”
