Frontman Oli Sykes later took to Instagram to post the album artwork tagging Halsey, Happyalone, Lotus Eater, BEXEY and YONAKA.
The Halsey collab was teased all the way back in July when Halsey posted the video below of her in the studio with some familiar voices in the background and tagged Sykes and Jordan Fish.
A few days after that, Sykes confirmed the two were in the studio together with a picture of his own.
And then a few days after that, in a now-deleted tweet, a clip of the song was posted. Fast forward to earlier this month, Halsey posted the tracklisting and list of collaborations off her upcoming album Manic. Fans were confused that BMTH were not on there. Halsey addressed why in an Instagram Live video when one user asked “what about BMTH collab???”
“OK, the Bring Me The Horizon song,” Halsey begins. “I knew you guys were going to ask about that. It’s not on this album, but there’s two—well technically ‘two’ things. One and then something else that are coming out not on my album—for something else with Bring Me The Horizon. And then I have another collaboration with another friend of mine that’s coming out this year too, and I’m putting out so much music next year.”
Now, BMTH announced a new EP officially on Twitter, simply stating “new record out now.”

With the EP, the band explores a different type of sound than the metal and rock components we’re used to hearing from them. They have always utilized electronic elements in their music, but this time they turn it all the way up.
Twitter users have had mixed reactions regarding the album, some are confused while others are content to just have new content.
