HALSEY – ” You Should Be Sad “

Halsey has no inhibitions when it comes to getting raw emotionally — and Manicis her most fearless move yet. She chases her darkest anxieties all over the spectrum, from hip-hop to rock to country, in hits like “Without You” and “Graveyard” — the kind of album where you can find Alanis Morissette, Suga from BTS, Jennifer’s Body samples or a voicemail pep talk from John Mayer. Halsey has the too-much too-young celebrity blues: as she sings, “I remember the names of every single kid I’ve met/But I forget half the people I’ve gotten in bed.” Yet she wrestles with her issues in her own unmistakably real voice

“Poetic lyricism and [a] tendency to deliver dark, angsty verses disguised as fun, catchy pop songs.” – Madelyn Tait. The continued renaissance of Halsey thrives in the US songstresses latest release. As usual, the electro-pop hitmaker knocks it out of the park in terms of the songs themselves, but Manic is thematically miles ahead of her previous releases and well beyond her 25 years.

Known offstage as Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, the singer takes her newest LP as a chance to deep-dive into her own internal battles with bipolar disorder and channel those internal struggles into a creative triumph. It’s more personal, emotive, intense and compelling than anything Frangipane has put out before, and a thoughtful peek beyond the curtain to the woman behind the moniker.

Halsey’s new album ‘Manic’ out now!
