Halsey Teases Upcoming Album with Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross

Halsey teaming up with Reznor and Ross is the collaboration we didn't know we needed.


Just six months after revealing that she’s pregnant with her first child, pop singer Halsey has announced another little project she’s been incubating: a collaboration with Nine Inch Nails’s Trent Reznor and fellow Oscar winner Atticus Ross. Titled If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power, the album is the follow-up to last year’s Manic.

The 26-year-old singer posted a video of a billboard for the album on social media, accompanied by a clip of a grungy, industrial track with the lyric “All of this is temporary.” Manic was both confessional and, at times, musically experimental, and If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power looks to push Halsey even further out of the realm of conventional pop.
