Fans have been quick to find some of the posters earning praise from the singer.

While the posters in New York were found quickly, Bay Area fans were quick to point out how wide their search is compared to other locations.

Needless to say, fans are excited about the new song. Many believe it signals a darker-era for the artist, but we’ll have to wait and see.

More on Halsey

When Halsey announced the intimate shows at Webster Hall, she put tickets on sale at 5:17 p.m. leading fans to suspect an announcement on May 17th.

After that, she posted a link in her social media bios directing fans to a site where they can sign up for email alerts and proceed to share what their worst nightmare ever was.

Then, fans could choose from a series of options such as “falling,” “demons/ghosts,” “natural disaster” or “loved one dying” and the site tells them an interpretation of their worst nightmare.

She went on to say “there’s new music coming sooner than you think” at the Webster Hall shows. Check out the videos below for clips of the show.
