Halsey Releases New Album 'If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power'

Today, Halsey released their fourth studio album, "If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power". The career-defining album, which features 13 songs penned by Halsey, was produced by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Known for their work in Nine Inch Nails and as Oscar, Golden Globe and GRAMMY-winning film/television composers, "If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power" is the first album the pair have produced for another artist. Dave Grohl, Lindsey Buckingham and Pino Palladino guest on the album. Anticipation has been building since early July, when Halsey unveiled the album's cover art at The Met Fifth Avenue in New York City.

Hailing the album as "an industrial-leaning masterpiece," SPIN observed, "Halsey is not a woman, they're a rock God. And "IICHLIWP" proves she's earned the title." Stereogum heralded "If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power" as "one of those statement albums that change the course of an artist's career." Associated Press noted, "Halsey is at her best here...This is the sound of ambition, an evolution of Halsey's sound..."

IMAX Experience: Halsey Presents "If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power" screened in cities around the globe earlier this week. Additional IMAX screenings will take place in select theaters on Saturday, August 28. The hour-long film experience, set to the music of the new album, was written by Halsey, and directed by Colin Tilley.

Halsey continues to push creative boundaries, exerting an influence and impact beyond music. Their first book, I Would Leave Me If I Could: A Collection of Poetry, debuted on The New York Times Best Sellers list last November. Halsey recently introduced about-face, a multi-dimensional makeup line for made for everyone. Halsey continues to speak up for important causes such as disenfranchised youth, women's rights, mental health and the LGBTQ community.
