Halsey’s raw autobiographical portrait of the artist as a young mess, craving her share of love and tenderness in a hostile world. Yet Halsey’s Ashley Frangipane is a mess who’s a hungrily ambitious artist seeing herself as a mirror for her entire generation. As she told Rolling Stone last summer, Manic is “hip-hop, rock, country, fucking everything.” Who else but Halsey would get stellar guest shots from Alanis Morissette and Suga from BTS on the same album?

Her newest album Manic”is due on in a little over a month on January. 17th and the singer is dropping bangers. Today, Halsey dropped two new singles “Finally // beautiful stranger”  includes a powerful music video exploring the dichotomy of fame and love in an old-time club. The goal of every pop star is basically to get to the place where Halsey is with Manic. With any remaining questions about her bonafides as a top-level hitmaker long answered — 2019 Hot 100 topper “Without Me” is here as proof, even with a congratulatory lead-in from John Mayer — the New Jersey-born singer-songwriter was guaranteed a mass audience for her extremely personal songs of love, heartbreak, anxiety and rage. Those range here from the music box-like delicacy of “Clementine” to the post-grunge last-call fury of “3AM,” and call on special guests as wide-reaching as Alanis Morissette and Suga from BTS. But it’s all unmistakably Halsey, and given the album’s stellar performance (moving over 200k units in its first week of release) that’s what listeners really want from her anyway.

Halsey’s new album ‘Manic’ out now!
