Halsey Confirms New Album & Announces First Single: ‘There’s So Much I Am Going to Reveal’

For Halsey‘s next trick, the artist is making their last era disappear. The pop star has announced that her fifth studio album is finally complete, and its first taste will arrive in the form of a new single coming in less than 24 hours.

On Monday (June 3), the star shared what appears to be cover artwork and wrote on social. media, “I’m releasing the first song off my 5th album tomorrow 6/04 at 9am pt / 12 et. Before the first single comes, I wanted to share this. It means a lot to me and I love it.” 

They added, “Let’s try something different this time and start at ‘The End.’” 

The announcement comes after fans noticed last week that Halsey had unveiled a cryptic new website titled “ForMyLastTrick.com.” The page boasts several illustrated badges, some of them leading to what appear to be clues about the new album. 

One shaped like a vinyl record, for instance, leads to a Spotify playlist full of iconic songs from the late ’60s and early ’70s, while a drawing of a doctor X-raying a patient’s heart plays an ominous droning sound upon being clicked. The most telling badge, however, is a ticket stub labeled “The End,” which now prompts a letter from Halsey to pop up onscreen. 

“As you may have guessed, I have written a new album,” their letter, dated a mysterious “6/?/71,” reads. “But I needed some time to figure out how to say what I needed to say. You see, I’ve been holding [REDACTED] and I need to let it out.” 

“There’s so much I am going to reveal on this record, but you need to know some of the story first,” the letter continues. “So before the chaos and confetti of big singles and album releases I just need to tell you, my friend, why it all matters this time. I’m releasing a new song on June 4. It’s just for us.”  

The “Closer” singer added in her note, “Let’s start at THE END.”  

Halsey’s new record will follow 2021’s If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power, which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. The About-Face Beauty founder has only dropped a few sparse singles in the three years since, including 2023’s “Die 4 Me” and 2022’s “So Good,” both of which charted on the Billboard Hot 100

In September, Halsey teased that their next album would be on the emotional side. “splitting myself in two everyday so that I can give you my deepest wounds (and a handful of perfect joys) for the 5th time in 10 years,” she wrote on Instagram at the time.
