Halsey has shared the release date and cover for upcoming Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross-produced album If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power.

Halsey has shared the striking artwork and release date for upcoming Nine Inch Nails-produced fourth album, If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power.

The eagerly-awaited record will be arriving on August 27, with the cover unveiled via a silent 15-minute video of Halsey walking around New York’s Metropolitan Museum Of Art, before the artwork is presented from underneath a red curtain. Seriously badass.

As we’ve previously reported, If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power is being billed as Halsey’s punk rock” album, though they have been prevalent in the scene for a number of years. The artist has previously worked with Machine Gun Kelly (Forget Me Too), Bring Me The Horizon (Experiment On Me, ¿), and Travis Barker and YUNGBLUD (11 Minutes).

And in November last year, Halsey admitted that a heavier album could be on the cards in the future.

I do really want to, but it needs to come naturally,” they admitted. I’ve never sat down before and been like, Okay, I want to make this type of album.’ The album kind of makes itself. When that time comes, it’ll happen on its own. I definitely need to do it eventually, though, because I’m starting to age out of being angsty and punk.”

Trent and Atticus have also likely been working on new NIN material recently.

After picking up Best Original Score Oscar for Disney and Pixar movie Soul in April, the frontman teased, We are planning on working on Nine Inch Nails material as soon as… probably tomorrow.”
