Halsey‘s newest album Manic is due on in a little over a month on Jan. 17 and the singer is dropping bangers. Today, Halsey dropped two new singles “Finally // beautiful stranger” and her collab with BTS‘s SUGA, “SUGAs Interlude”.
“Finally // beautiful stranger” includes a powerful music video exploring the dichotomy of fame and love in an old-time club. Check them out below!
After revealing the tracklisting for Manic a few days ago, fans are in a frenzy to get every bit of content they can before Manic’s release. And it seems Halsey is more than willing to accommodate.
The singer dropped two new tracks today, one including a video. Check out the tweet from Halsey below.

“Finally // beautiful stranger” is a moving, emotional song that explores first love and the emotions it causes. Watch the beautiful video below.
A fun tidbit about the “Finally // beautiful stranger” artwork is that Halsey drew it herself.

After Halsey revealed the tracklisting with BTS member Suga, Dominic Fike and Alanis Morissette appearing on the tracklist, fans were quick to question where the teased Bring Me The Horizon collab was hiding. The vocalist opened up on why it’s missing on her Instagram story.
During her Instagram live, Halsey began answering fans’ questions about the tracklist reveal. One user asked, “what about BMTH collab???” which the singer saw and replied to.
“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.”
Halsey might be referring to Sykes’ comments about the band producing “shorter records” in 2020 after the release of Death Stranding: Timefall track “Ludens”.
“‘Ludens’ will be the first song you hear from the new record. We’re not going to do an album again, maybe ever.” Sykes told NME last month. “We’re thinking about doing shorter records. I don’t want to say we’re going to do something and not live up to it, but the plan is to release multiple records next year.”
The second teased collab the alt-pop singer refers to might just be with another band, 5 Seconds Of Summer. Earlier today, 5SOS fans continued speculating on the band’s new era after they launched an album preorder for a release that hasn’t been announced yet. As their fanbase continued to dive deep into the internet, they uncovered a track on Genius titled “End It” that credits Halsey as a collaborator.
On today’s Instagram Live, Halsey also opened up more on her other collabs with Morissette Dominic Fike, and Suga explaining how each one represents a different part of her personality. The singer previously collaborated with BTS as a whole on “Boy With Luv” and made a cameo in Fike’s “Phone Numbers” video.
