The long-awaited Halsey’s Darkest Album “If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power” has arrived.
At midnight on Friday, the vocalist of “Graveyard” released their daring and gloomy fourth studio album.
With songs like “honey,” Halsey delves deeper into the industrial rock and grunge genre. “You begged for this,” “Whispers,” “Easier than Lying,” and “The Lighthouse,” the album’s most ominous tune.
“The Lighthouse” is a metaphor for Halsey’s transformation from a weak human to a powerful force, in which the devil regrets changing the singer from a weak individual into a powerful force.
“That’ll teach a man not to mess with me / I’m still wandering the beach, and I’m happy I met the Devil because he showed me how weak I was / And a little piece of him is in a tiny piece of me, “In the unsettling track, they sing.
While the album as a whole exudes confidence and empowerment, certain tracks, such as “Lilith,” explore Halsey’s struggle with self-hatred. She sings of desiring love but believing a previous relationship has tainted her beyond repair.
“If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power” is now available in stores.
