On the track, Halsey offers her support to a loved one who’s struggling. “I don’t know why you hide from the one and close your eyes to the one / Mess up and lie to the one that you love,” she sings, “When you know you can cry to the one, always confide in the one / You can be kind to the one that you love.”
The song arrived on Friday, May 1 with an accompanying lyric video that builds on the initial floral visual both artists used to tease the song. Watch it below.
Halsey recently performed as part of the Jersey 4 Jersey benefit livestream, raising money for individuals and local businesses in her home state affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
She also confirmed she will donate 100,000 protective face masks to hospitals in California as the US continues to battle Covid-19. Halsey added that she was “in awe of the medical workers on the frontlines”.
The singer released her new album ‘Manic’ at the start of 2020. In a four-star review, NME described the album as “stream-of-consciousness musings on family, love, and fame,” adding: “This album is very much a document of her life, her love, her pain, her hope, presented with all barriers down.
“The musician’s previous concepts have both been compelling in themselves but, by stripping back the stories to their very personal core, Halsey has made a record that is as thrilling as it is vulnerable, and her best effort yet. This is Ashley’s world; it’s really nice to meet her.”
Halsey has recently said that she wants to make an entire album of songs in the style of her recent Bring Me The Horizon collaboration ‘Experiment On Me’.
