HALSEY – ” If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power “

Posted: December 9, 2021 in MUSIC
Halsey

Halsey penned the songs for her fifth album If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power herself. She recorded the career-defining album with Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, known for their work in Nine Inch Nails and as OscarGolden Globe and Grammy-winning film/television composers. She continues to push creative boundaries, expanding her influence and impact beyond music. She uses her voice to speak up for causes she passionately believes in, including disenfranchised youth, women’s rights, mental health and the LGBTQ community.”

If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power”, Halsey’s masterful pivot to a darker alt-rock focus, can partially be credited to Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, the Nine Inch Nails veterans who produced the project and helped locate its industrial centre. Yet few pop artists in recent memory have been able to shapeshift with Halsey’s dexterity, and they spend the album hopscotching across jittery electronica (“Girl is a Gun”), brash pop-punk (“Honey”), grooving R&B (“Lilith”) and lullaby balladry (“Darling”), all while reflecting on the challenges and revelations of her recent journey as a new mother. While Halsey found the perfect support system to bring “If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power” to life, the songs shine because of the complex, daring — and, yes, powerful — artist at their centre.
