Halsey's New Album: Everything We Know So Far
Including the title, release date, track list and the exclusive listening party.
Hold onto your god damn hats, kids because Halsey just released the artwork for the lead single from Hopeless Fountain Kingdom. It's called 'Now or Never' and it's coming TOMORROW. The era begins...

Hopeless Fountain Kingdom album roll out mode is in full force as Halsey tweets out a mysterious link to a website called 'Find Me In The Kingdom'.
Following the link leads to a bright yellow landing page with different time zones on it.
At 6PM Paris/Milan time, Halsey's site updated with two sets of coordinates. It appears that, as each indicated time lapses, more coordinates will be added to the site.

After all nine coordinates and clues had been found, Halsey released the cover of the album.
thank you for putting the pieces together. always for you, nothing without you. hopeless fountain kingdom 6.2.17 pic.twitter.com/1IUKjlGEA4— h (@halsey) March 31, 2017
Then she tweeted a cryptic tease that is almost DEFINITELY pointing to the release date and time of the lead single from the album. 4/4/17. SHOOK.

Someone on Twitter *appeared* to discover a handful of songs that had been registered under Halsey's name, leading to speculation that these were new tracks from Hopeless Fountain Kingdom. Initially, we were so shook by this new nugget of information that we thought they were legit...
Three songs written by Halsey titled Wolf, Great Big Feeling and Honestly have been registered in the BMI Repertoire! pic.twitter.com/hSNwJ84xgT— Halsey Updates (@halseysupdating) March 28, 2017
That was until Halsey replied to the sleuth and debunked the entire thing... sooooooo awkward.
Halsey's album, Hopeless Fountain Kingdom will officially be released on June 2nd 2017.

3 months after our sleuth, Halsey has FINALLY revealed the title of her upcoming album - and we were (almost) right! Arriving in June, her second studio album will be called Hopeless Fountain Kingdom.
im pleased to announce my upcoming album, this june, is titled:— h (@halsey) March 7, 2017
hopeless fountain kingdom.
see you soon. pic.twitter.com/MsBA0ntyAk
But don't get too shook, because the image above is NOT the album cover. In fact, Halsey is going to send us all on another treasure hunt to find it.
Nope! When I'm ready for you to have the album cover,— h (@halsey) March 8, 2017
I'm gonna make you find it. https://t.co/zgtwEkxgzt
Today Halsey tweeted this alongside a tour date and moon emoji, alluding that ~something~ was coming.
now. now it's starting. see you soon.— h (@halsey) March 7, 2017
Then fans noticed new twitter accounts appeared under the handles @soliangelus/@lunaaureun (the rumoured 'Romeo and Juliet' characters of the album) and @houseofangelus/@houseofaureum (which people are speculating stand for the two house/families as in Romeo and Juliet)

It seems that Halsey has created two "houses of..." similar to the houses of Capulet and Montague pic.twitter.com/8wz2PmoIOE— Halsey Updates (@halseysupdating) March 7, 2017
The banner image on the 'Juliet'/@lunaauren account also appears to be of Halsey, as her tattoo is visible slightly. The moon imagery seems consistent across Halsey's and the new twitter accounts, subtly signposting that they are all linked.
Halsey previewed four new songs for a select group of 100 fans while in London yesterday, sharing some images from the event via Twitter earlier this morning.
I sent sneaky invites to 100 fans in London yesterday to hear 4 new songs off of my next record. We cried. pic.twitter.com/SRYtaWXyLV— h (@halsey) February 28, 2017
While the fans were sworn to secrecy when it comes to specifics, a few new details about the record have begun to leak out.
First up, there's this intriguing detail about the concept:
The new album is one of love and loss with songs based on the Shakespearean tragedy of Romeo and Juliet.— Halsey Updates (@HalseyInsider) February 27, 2017
Then there's all these direct quotes from the session:
Some things Halsey said today! (no spoilers, just cute shit she said) pic.twitter.com/dav48ML28k— SUCKER (@fuzzybee1234567) February 27, 2017
Plus, the singer has confirmed that the album will have around 17 tracks and there will be more listening events around the world in the coming weeks. Watch this space!
Invites have been sent out to fans who registered their email addresses on Halsey's new website, promoting a mysterious event set to take place at an undisclosed London location next Monday (February 27th). We'll be keeping our eyes peeled for more info until then...
Read all about the event below:
Twitter: Halsey Updating
Halsey is dropping hints about her new music once again. We think...
A mysterious new Twitter account and tumblr page have appeared over the last few hours that appear to be from Halsey herself.
The Tumblr, oncelebratinglife.tumblr.com, features various pictures of the singer and her friends in woodland and city scapes, with a top headline that reads 'Counterweight' and encourages you to send love letters to a new email addressing referencing the new album's expected title The Kingdom.
Furthermore, the Twitter account, @houseofangelus, teased what appear to be some lyrics and a call for fans to RSVP at a website that seems to involve some new music.
he who hath love for what he find,— ANGELUS (@houseofangelus) February 16, 2017
must seek the fruit of a curious mind.
Plus the Roman numerals in the Twitter image seems to confirm the June release date of the record. Basically, it's all a bit confusing but we're gonna be keeping our eyes peeled as further word gets spread from inside The Kingdom.
ORIGINAL POST 17/11/16
Just before Halsey played one of her last shows on the Badlands Tour to a sold out Madison Square Garden arena, she started posting blank white squares to her social media accounts (kinda like a clean slate) with no captions. *screams*
WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?! Has she quit social media by going blank? Is she preparing to launch a brand new aesthetic? Will there be a new album?!
At the end of the MSG show, Halsey walked off stage. Two seconds later, a message appeared on a white screen:
She then tweeted this:
YOU CAN FIND ME IN THE KINGDOM...— h (@halsey) August 14, 2016
And followed it up by retweeting this from 2014.
(and the Kingdom)— h (@halsey) 12 November 2014
Honestly, we're so shook we can't think straight. Not only is it clear that Halsey's next chart topping album is on the way, it's pretty damn obvious that she's been planning this ENTIRE thing from the very first moment she dropped the 'Room 93' EP back in 2014. From 'Room 93', to the 'Badlands' and now onto the next chapter. But where are we going?
What is the the first track on the 'Badlands' album? Castle. And what are the lyrics to Castle?
"They've got the kingdom locked up"— HALSEY UPDATES (@HalseyInfoWW) August 14, 2016
And the last track on the 'Badlands' album? Young God. And what are the lyrics to Young God?
Young God x Untitled // Halsey pic.twitter.com/8ij7txVkHI— ALLCAPSLYRICS (@ALLCAPSLYRICS) August 14, 2016
The tweet above combines the lyrics of Young God with this tweet from 2014. She's literally been dropping hints about the narrative of her albums since 2014.
The people aren't ready for the king and the queen.— h (@halsey) 8 June 2014
So basically, we've escaped the Badlands and we've made it to Kingdom and the fans can't handle it.
We left the BADLANDS— HALSEY UPDATES (@HalseyInfoWW) August 14, 2016
And you can find me in the KINGDOM https://t.co/EFvP1loRPX
halsey: you can find me in the kingdom— kelsarito (@ms_starling) August 14, 2016
y'all don't give Halsey enough credit. she's had all this planned out for a long time. she's really clever.— mads (@girIstaIkIive) August 14, 2016
halsey then: they've got the kingdom locked up— calli (@bIondcurls) August 14, 2016
halsey now: you'll find me in the kingdom pic.twitter.com/HrROc9qgfC
See ya later, Badlands...
halsey gave us no time to mourn the loss of badlands we immediately switched over to the kingdom— krista (@signaturehalsey) August 14, 2016
We'd like an ice cold cocktail waiting for us in 'The Kingdom' when we arrive, please and thank you!
