Halsey Releases Clementine From Upcoming Album
Halsey is one of the biggest pop stars in the world and the biggest pop stars tend to have the longest album rollouts. Her third album, Manic, will be released on January 17, 2020. The album’s first single, “Without Me”, was released last year and attained the top spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 in January, making it her first #1 as a lead artist.
Despite premiering Manic‘s second single, “Graveyard”, at Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty show just a few weeks ago, Halsey decided to drop “Clementine” today in honour of her 25th birthday. “Clementine” is a stripped-back track, driven by simple piano tinkling and some subtle clunking for percussion. It can be deemed as the centrepiece of Manic for thematic reasons. Every line contradicts the previous, constantly pulling in opposite directions while evidencing a clarity that holds it all together.
I’d like to tell you that my sky’s not blue, it’s violent rain
And in my world, the people on the street don’t know my name
In my world, I’m seven feet tall
And the boys always call, and the girls do too
Because in my world, I’m constantly, constantly havin’ a breakthrough (Hmm)
Or a breakdown, or a blackout
Would you make out with me underneath the shelter of the balcony?
