Halsey is almost ready to give birth to a new album, according to the singer's recent video announcement reported by Pitchfork.

Their forthcoming and fourth LP, "If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power," is a concept album "about the joys and horrors of pregnancy and childbirth," Halsey wrote on Instagram.


"It was very important to me that the cover art conveyed the sentiment of my journey over the past few months," says Halsey, due to give birth to their first child with screenwriter boyfriend Alev Aydin any day now. "This cover image celebrates pregnant and postpartum bodies as something beautiful, to be admired. We have a long way to go with eradicating the social stigma around bodies & breastfeeding. I hope this can be a step in the right direction!"

"If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power, Halsey's follow-up to 2020's Manic, was produced by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. The LP arrives August 27 via Capitol.
