Halsey announces world tour, drops new single ‘Eyes Closed’

Halsey is gearing up to embark on her “biggest tour yet.”

On Wednesday, the 22-year-old songstress revealed she has mapped out a worldwide tour to promote her upcoming sophomore album hopeless fountain kingdom.

“This is the biggest tour I’ve ever done. and I’m gonna bring u the biggest show to go with it,” she wrote on Twitter, also sharing the 30-date arena trek. The two month tour kicks off September 29 in Connecticut.

If your nearest city is not listed, no need to fret. Halsey ensured fans that that more dates will follow, adding, “if you were around for badlands you know that it’s Installment One of a world tour which is why this portion is only North American dates.”

PARTYNEXTDOOR and Charli XCX are slated as the singer’s opening acts for Installment One.

Following the news of a new tour, Halsey kept the excitement rolling by debuting a second single off her soon-to-be-released LP, titled “Eyes Closed.” On Thursday, the track was unveiled during a Beats 1 interview with Zane Lowe.

“It’s this hyperbolized smash-cut fantasy Halsey cinematic universe interpretation of this very normal relationship I went through,” she shared about the song.” During the interview, Halsey also discussed her forthcoming collaboration with Fifth Harmony member Lauren Jauregui.

“I think I’ve never heard a song. And, I may be wrong, of two openly LGTB women singing a love story to each other on Top 40 radio,” she added, referring to herself and Jauregui, who are both publicly open about their bisexuality.

hopeless fountain kingdom is due out June 2.
