On Monday (June 28), black billboards in Los Angeles announced exciting Halsey news: the singer is prepping her fourth studio album, entitled If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power.
The follow-up to Manic is produced by Oscar and Grammy-winning composing duo Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. Details on the record's release date and tracklist have yet to be announced. In a teaser of a black billboard posted to social media, a sound clip can be heard of Halsey singing "All of this is temporary" over a grinding track with fuzzy guitars and dark instrumentals.
Many believe Halsey will be ditching her pop sounds and switching to a more punk rock feel for If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power. Halsey has recently explored a more rock-centric sound, releasing "11 Minutes" with U.K. punk star Yungblud and Travis Barker in 2019, followed by "Forget Me Too" with Machine Gun Kelly in 2020, and several songs with Bring Me the Horizon.
Halsey's album release also comes at an interesting point in her life. The singer recently revealed she is pregnant with her and screenwriter Alev Aydin's first child. Halsey hinted at the Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross album collaboration on social media when she posted a mirror selfie of her wearing a Nine Inch Nails (Reznor and Ross's band) t-shirt over her baby bump.
Besides Halsey, Trent Reznor has collaborated with a number of artists throughout his career, including David Bowie, Saul Williams, and his wife, singer Mariqueen Maandig. He and Nine Inch Nails bandmate Atticus Ross have written a plethora of award-winning movie and TV scores over the past decade. Their work includes the scores for The Social Network, Watchmen, Mank, and their most recent Oscar-winning success, Pixar's Soul.
