Halsey’s hopeless fountain kingdom begins with the prologue from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, and progresses into the continuation of the musician’s tale of two mysterious lovers from her 2015 album Badlands.
It’s a super poppy release that anyone who loved her previous work will absolutely adore. This is her second album, and you can see how much life experience she’s gained since the previous release – hopeless fountain kingdom is an intensely personal exploration of relationships. This album joins the ‘musical universe’ she’s crafted in her works, and is a romantic and telling voyage through some of the more intimate aspects of life.
hopeless fountain kingdom is out now via EMI.
