Halsey Unveils Tracklist for ‘hopeless fountain kingdom’

Halsey has just dropped more news about her upcoming album, hopeless fountain kingdom. This morning, some fans of the singer across America woke up to a newspaper at their doorsteps called The Kingdom Times. The newspaper contained an exclusive reveal of the official tracklist, and we couldn’t be more excited for June 2nd to arrive! The tracklist is as follows:


Among the sixteen tracks on Halsey’s album are three collaborations: Cashmere Cat, Quavo of Migos, and Lauren Jauregui of Fifth Harmony. Lauren’s feature on ‘Strangers’ will not be her first solo project outside of the girl group; she worked with Marian Hill on the track ‘Back to Me’ and has an upcoming collaboration with Steve Aoki. These three hopless fountain kingdom songs will be Halsey’s first collaborations since she worked with The Chainsmokers on the hit song ‘Closer’ last year.

The rest of “The Kingdom Times” newspaper featured headlines such as “What Happened At The Orpheus Tunnel?”, “A New Kind of Peace, A New Kind of War”, and “2nd Annual Youth Brawl Predictions.” Fans scoured the paper for possible hints about the album, but Halsey is keeping things pretty cryptic for now.


Of course, there have been several fan speculations about what certain sections of the newspaper could mean. Many think that the dates on the various editions of The Kingdom Times could indicate upcoming concert dates for the cities.


Just a few weeks ago, Halsey dropped the first single from the album, ‘Now or Never’. She also made her directorial debut with the release of the music video on the same day. She describes the song as “one delicate side of a bigger story” and assures fans that “there are so many perspectives to tell” on hopeless fountain kingdom.

Halsey’s sophomore album, hopeless fountain kingdom, is set to release on June 2nd and is available to pre-order now.
