Halsey revealed the striking artwork for their new album If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power, and the star looked truly regal perched on a golden throne.
The singer, who is pregnant with their first child, released a special film of themselves wandering the empty rooms of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art that ended with a red curtain to reveal the cover.
In the image, the Without Me singer, in a giant, ornate crown, poses with a baby in her lap, the front of her blue dress open to reveal one of her breasts.
The star, 26, wrote the tracks for the album themselves and recorded it with Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.
Fans can pre-order the album, due out August 27, starting today from Halsey’s store.
They also launched a website to coincide with the promotion of the album, teasing a lot more to come in the run-up to its release.
If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power follows their album Manic which topped Billboard’s current best album charts and was the first album of 2020 to be certified Platinum in the United States.
It has been a year to remember for the Grammy nominated artist so far. In addition to expecting a baby that they revealed to fans earlier this year, they will be using the pronouns she / they.
Halsey subtly updated her Instagram page with preferred pronouns in March, sparking a surge of support from followers.
The songwriter proudly shared that they identify as female and also non-binary, a term used to describe people who believe their gender cannot be defined within the margins of the gender binary.
This will be the first child of singer and partner Alev Aydin, having previously suffered multiple miscarriages and undergone surgery to treat endometriosis.
