We’ve been waiting patiently for Halsey to drop her next album, which she said will be “less dystopian fantasy world.” The only thing holding us over is the artist’s catalog, including her debut album, Badlands, which was released four years ago today.
While Halsey states her upcoming effort is better than Badlands, we’ll still be jamming them equally. One song from the album that we still can’t get out of our heads is “Colors.” If you have the same problem, you might as well put that knowledge to the test. We made a quiz for you to see if you can remember the lyrics to the classic Halsey track. Check it out below.
More on Halsey
Sitting down with Billboard, our scene queen opened up about her forthcoming album and her undying need to change the world.
Yesterday, Halsey stopped by the sixth annual Capitol Congress to chat with Lizzy Goodman about her recent single “Nightmare,” her new album and more.
While fans won’t be seeing “Nightmare” on the new album, we’ve still had it on repeat as our go-to angry anthem.
“Female rage is a tight subject for me right now,” Halsey tells Billboard. “I’m interested in female everything right now…I went from only wanting to hang out with boys to ‘I love women, they’re awesome.’ I’ve grown out of my internalized misogyny.”
It looks like H3 will share a similar vibe. The vocalist revealed that it “has anger, betrayal and confusion, but it’s more inward than I intended it to be.”
Halsey’s original intent had been to write about the world around her, “but I got two songs in and [realized] I only know about me… This album is less dystopian fantasy world and more like ‘this is what I’m thinking right now: ‘the world sucks. Fuck.’”

Using her platform to write kickass anthems isn’t the only thing this badass powerhouse is going. Halsey is very open about her partnerships with Planned Parenthood and the ACLU. She’s expresses a desire to change the world, which continues to be a driving force for her.
“I go to bed and wake up thinking the same thing: thinking about how I can change the world. Hopefully, I never lose that and the day I do, take me out into the yard guys. I’m serious.”
