Halsey announces new album arriving in June

Brian ZiffWith the success of Halsey's collaborative song "Closer" with DJ duo The Chainsmokers had this past year, you'd be forgiven for forgetting that it's been almost two years since she released a new album of her own. But that's about to change.

"[I']m pleased to announce my upcoming album, this june, is titled: hopeless fountain kingdom," Halsey tweeted Tuesday evening, including a rather risque photo of herself naked to below-the-waist.  The eye-popping photo, however, is NOT the album cover, she clarified in response to a question from one Twitter user. "When I'm ready for you to have the album cover, I'm gonna make you find it," she tweeted.

hopeless fountain kingdom -- yes, the title is all lower case -- is the followup to Halsey's debut full-length album, 2015's Badlands, which features the single "New Americana."

In the intervening time Halsey hasn't been completely idle.  Besides her smash hit with The Chainsmokers she's delivered two movie soundtrack songs -- a remake of her Badlands track "Castle" for the soundtrack to The Huntsman: Winter's War in 2016, and earlier this year "Not Afraid Anymore" from the soundtrack to Fifty Shades Darker.
