This week, I have mostly been listening to Halsey.
Now, unless you’ve been living under a rock, it’s likely you’re familiar with Halsey’s music, activism and bold (and wonderful) statements about her sexuality and mental health.
I wasn’t familiar. I do live under a rock. I am glad I have corrected that now.
Halsey has released four albums to date, which have an increasing development and tone. Her latest, If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power, produced by Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor, is particularly adventurous. There are such a wider range of influences to her music which makes it dynamic and different, like it’s being pulled in a number of directions. I state that as a positive, by the way.
It was only in the depths of my Halsey week that I discovered I had heard her before, as part of the cast of Sing 2.
But the less said about why I have heard that, the better.
My Spotify playlist of artists for 2022 will be built up here.
