A tune.

Halsey shares the second release off of hopeless fountain kingdom.

It’s a been a big week for Halsey. The singer announced a world tour with support from Justin Bieber, PARTYNEXTDOOR and Charli XCX. She also has a followup to “Now Or Never” titled “Eyes Closed” for us. It’s the next Romeo & Juliet-themed installment off her forthcoming sophomore record (out June 2).

“I know how to play / I know this game / It’s all the same,” she sings over a cinematic beat produced by Benny Blanco. Her vocals are airy and vulnerable. “And if I keep my eyes closed he looks just like you / But he’ll never stay / They never do.”

The song features input from The Weeknd. “He’s probably one of the only artists that I can truly say has an influence on my music,” she said.


Halsey sat down with Zane Lowe to chat about the album’s creation process with director Baz Luhrmann. Watch that below:
