The site took fans to a live video premiere for her highly anticipated track “Graveyard” which was set to drop Sept. 13.
Leading up to the premiere, Halsey gave fans a sneak peek at her creative process where she spent over 7 hours painting a beautiful self-portrait that doubles as the Manic album cover.
Now, after what has felt like an eternity of waiting, “Graveyard” is finally here in all of its pastel painting perfection.

Changing her Twitter bio and header image to match, the simple sentence seemed to confirm the H3 fan theory that the new album would be her first written as Ashley Frangipane, instead of her stage name Halsey.
Now, it looks like Manic will arrive Jan. 17, 2020. You can pre-save and preorder the 16-track album here. Bundles and merch can be purchased via Halsey’s website with each preorder receiving instant digital downloads of “Graveyard” and mega-hit “Without Me.”
