GRAMMY® Award-nominated multi-platinum alternative pop maverick Halsey is confirmed to visit Australian shores at the end of the month for a flying promotional visit. She’ll undertake a series of media engagements in support of her second full-length album, hopeless fountain kingdom.
hopeless fountain kingdom raced straight to No. 1 on iTunes across the world on release, debuted at No.2 on the ARIA Albums Chart and No. 1 on the US Billboard Top 200. It contains the Platinum-certified first single ‘Now Or Never’ and tracks ‘Eyes Closed’ and ‘Strangers’ featuring Lauren Jauregui.
hopeless fountain kingdom credits Halsey as executive producer alongside Benny Blanco, Greg Kurstin, Lido and Ricky Reed, and features guests such as Quavo, Lauren Jauregui and Cashmere Cat.
“Halsey could write down what was in my refrigerator and somehow make it feel poetic,” says Benny Blanco, who produced the lead single ‘Now Or Never’. “She has the ability to make you both smile and cry at the drop of a hat and make it feel effortless all at the same time.”
“[Halsey] has a strong point of view and she really puts a lot of thought and care into her lyrics,” says producer Greg Kurstin.” I found writing with her inspiring.”
Halsey has taken the music world by storm with her Romeo and Juliet inspired album offering. She has performed live on such influential US programs as The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Today Show (US), along with the Billboard Music Awards.
To date, ‘Now or Never’ has achieved both an ARIA and RIAA (US) Platinum certification, amassed 150 million Spotify streams and 28 million cumulative YouTube/VEVO views, and ‘Eyes Closed‘ has generated 21 million Spotify streams.
Halsey first stormed the pop culture kingdom in 2015 with her album Badlands, which now has five gold and two platinum singles. Her debut crash-landed at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and earned a platinum-certification in under year. She sold out arenas everywhere and garnered a 2017 GRAMMY® nomination in the category of “Best Pop Duo/Group Performance” for “Closer,” her seven times platinum megahit with The Chainsmokers.
