Halsey’s Debut Album “Badlands” to be Released on August 28th – Get the Scoop! (@halseymusic)

HALSEY_BADLANDS_JPGHot on the heels of her acclaimed Room 93 EPHalsey will release her full-length debut album, BADLANDS [Astralwerks], on August 28, 2015 in stores and through all digital partners.

The digital pre-order is live now. Pre-ordering the 11-track standard edition unlocks two instant grat downloads-the single “Ghost” and never-before-heard Hold Me Down” while pre-ordering the 16-track deluxe edition also includes an instant download of “Hurricane.” Her official D2C store features a limited-edition deluxe box set featuring with original artwork by Halsey, the full 16 track deluxe album in a special package, unreleased demo songs on custom 7″ vinyl, a map of BADLANDS, a custom lithograph from Halsey, button pack, sticker decals, and more. All pre-orders include a pre-sale code for her fall headlining tour as well. BADLANDS is an artfully constructed concept album, musically tracing a journey through a dystopia that may be how the future looks if you were living in the past.

The single “Ghost” has had over 50,000 digital downloads to date and more than 6-million Spotify streams. Along the way, she’s been crowned a YouTube Breakthrough Artist in 2014 and handpicked as for the VEVO DSCVR and Spotify EMERGE initiatives.

Commanding a firestorm of fan response, Halsey sold out her winter headline tour within minutes, went Top 5 on HypeMachine, and soared to #1 on both Billboard‘s Emerging Artists and Billboard‘s Trending Artists charts in addition to becoming a worldwide trending topic on Twitter multiple times. She also genuinely stole the show at SXSW as the 2015 fest’s “Most Tweeted Artist.”

Due to overwhelming demand, Halsey’s recently announced London show in September has been upgraded to a larger venue after selling out in under a minute. However, U.S. fans can catch her this summer supporting Imagine Dragons and Metric on their Smoke + Mirrors arena tour starting tomorrow, June 3rd. She’ll be hitting the stage at festivals including Firefly FestivalLollapalooza, and more.

Halsey is here, and she’s welcoming everyone to BADLANDS now.
