ORIGINAL STORY (July 8, 2021): Initially announced late June, Halsey‘s fourth album If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power has now officially received a release date. Along with the update, the musician has unveiled the record’s cover art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
In a 13-minute-long video, Halsey stands on the second floor of the Met in stunning smokey makeup and a sequined gown embracing her baby bump. She walks the halls of the landmark, giving fans a tour of the museum with famous works such as Duccio di Buoninsegna’s Madonna and Child painted in the early 14th century. She closes the video by revealing her new album’s cover art, which stars the musician herself sitting on a throne with a baby on her lap.
Recorded in partnership with Nine Inch Nails‘ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power is now available for pre-order online, and will officially drop on August 27. Watch the grand reveal below.
