Halsey Drops Her Brand New Single, Complete With Crazy Over-The-Top Music Video!

Halsey is back,and she brought a whole universe with her.

Her first single off the upcoming hopeless fountain kingdom album (out June 2) is a moody little loop called Now Or Never. We like it, but it’s not grabbing us.

The video goes the other way, introducing us to what Halsey calls “the hopeless fountain kingdom universe,” which we assume means this is the first of many vids in the setting.

The “universe” is… a bit much. Basically, it looks like Sicario and Baz Luhrmann‘s Romeo + Juliet had a violent baby. In other words, it’s SO Halsey.

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!

(Also worth noting, we’re pretty damn sure gurl is really chopping off her locks for the camera there!)

Watch Halsey Struggle With Star-Crossed Romance in ‘Now or Never’ Video

Halsey has returned with the first taste of her sophomore album Hopeless Fountain Kingdom. The R&B slow jam “Now or Never” was produced by Benny Blanco, Cashmere Cat and Happy Perez and comes with a violent, Mexico City-shot video co-directed by Halsey and Sing J Lee.

Moving away from the industrial-leaning alternative pop of her 2015 debut album Badlands, Halsey embraces a more sensual sound reminiscent of Justin Bieber’s Journals and the trap-soul of Bryson Tiller. The video deals with the same concept of star-crossed lovers that will permeate her forthcoming album, with a blue-haired Halsey trying to be with the man she loves despite being kept apart from him. Following a foreboding tarot card reading, a shootout occurs. Both Halsey and the man she loves miraculously survive, with the clip ending with the singer chopping off her hair.

“Now or Never” is Halsey’s directorial debut. “[It] is one part in the center of a long narrative that tells the story of two people in love despite the forces trying to keep them apart,” she says in a statement. “On its own, the song is about two impatient young lovers, but in the context of the Hopeless Fountain Kingdom universe, the stakes are much higher for these two star-crossed lovers.”

Hopeless Fountain Kingdom will be released on June 2nd. Like Badlands, the new LP is a quasi-concept album about a couple stuck in a limbo-like realm. The 22-year-old singer-songwriter teamed up with Greg Kurstin, Ricky Reed, Lido and Blanco to executive produce the album. Following the success of her Chainsmokers collaboration “Closer,” Halsey revealed to Rolling Stone that she’s open to creating more mainstream, radio-friendly pop. “I am more than capable of writing radio music,” she said. “And hopefully I’ll put my money where my mouth is on this album.”

WASHINGTON — Days before President Trump hosts his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, a top U.S. official warned Tuesday that “the clock has run out” on decades of diplomatic efforts to rein in North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs, and military action may ultimately be necessary. Hours after those remarks were reported, North Korea fired a ballistic missile into the waters off its east coast, according to South Korean officials.
