Halsey has shared another taste of her long-awaited studio album, Manic. The singer premieres the country ditty song, ‘You Should Be Sad’ along with its official visual—with homages to Bianca Jagger, Shania Twain, Lady GaGa and Carrie Underwood.
The song sees the musician wholly embrace the great yeehaw
renaissance. Watch the video below.
The record follows Manic singles like “Without Me," "Graveyard," "Finally // Beautiful Stranger," and "Suga's Interlude" with Suga of BTS. Halsey teased the album during a September 2019 interview with Zane Lowe, shortly after she dropped “Graveyard.”
“I sat there to make this album and I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m going to make an angry album,’" she said. "And I wasn’t mad. It’s exciting. ... I’m closing a chapter in this record that I feel very much like I needed to put the final word on, put the nail in the coffin, if you will. Graveyard, marry it.”
Manic, the follow-up to 2017’s Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, is set to arrive on January 17.
