Halsey Makes 'Angry Dark Music' With New 'Manic' Album

The '11 Minutes' singer will release her third record - the follow-up to 2017's 'Hopeless Fountain Kingdom' - on January 17, and she has revealed that she didn't go into the process feeling "mad", but ended up recording some pretty angsty lyrics.

On Apple Music Beats 1 radio show, she said of the single 'Graveyard': "Yeah, it's very human. A lot of those sounds are super organic."

Although Halsey had planned to write more about the world around her on the new record, she recently admitted that it didn't work and she is more comfortable writing about the world through the lens of her own experiences.

She explained: "I sat down to write this album and I was like, 'Alright, time to stop talking about yourself and start looking at the world around you!' And then I got two songs in and I was like, 'Uh, I only know how to talk about myself.' Because I don't know anything as well as I know me, so I can't write anything as true to f**king Halsey than when I'm writing about myself."

The star also called new single 'Nightmare' an "angry anthem".

She said: "Female rage is a very tight subject for me right now."
