We’re going to pause the madness around Manic for a second to throw it back to the Halsey album that put one of our favorite artists into the spotlight: BADLANDS

BADLANDS took the world by storm in 2015, but it was the song “Ghost” in February 2014 that hit SoundCloud and changed Halsey’s life forever. She was soon offered deals from multiple record labels before choosing to go with Astralwerks Records. They backed her EP Room 93 that same year before reissuing several of those songs in 2015 on her perfect debut album, BADLANDS

More on Halsey

Halsey is back with her latest album, Manic, which dropped Jan. 17. Before the release of her third full-length, she gifted us with the beautiful, moving video for the song “Finally // beautiful stranger” in December. You can watch the haunting video below. 

In early January, Halsey threw us another bone with the country-inspired music video for “You should be sad.” You can watch the full video below.

Halsey announced the first leg of her Manic tour back in September. It takes her throughout Europe, starting in Spain and ending in the U.K. Tickets are available here.

Last month, the singer announced dates for the North American leg of the tour. Tickets for that portion went on sale on Manic’s release day, Jan. 17. She’s backed by a bevy of talent. CHVRCHES, Omar Apollo, blackbear and PVRIS will all join Halsey on dates of this tour.
