This year Halsey’s Halloween party centered on the theme of “Almost Famous is an experiential Halloween Party in Hollywood, celebrating the Rockstars of the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s & 90’s.” Halsey took the theme seriously, dressing as Manson on his 1998 album Mechanical Animals.
Halsey recently released a music video for “Graveyard,” which comes off her upcoming album Manic, out January 17th. In Rolling Stone‘s June cover story, Halsey said that her new album is the first one she’s ever written while manic, including a sampling of “hip-hop, rock, country, fucking everything — because it’s so manic.” She said, “It’s literally just, like, whatever the fuck I felt like making; there was no reason I couldn’t make it.”
