Halsey Debuts ‘Clementine’ Song and Music Video On Her 25th Birthday
Instead of fans giving her gifts for her 25th birthday, Halsey celebrated by releasing a new song and music video, “Clementine.” The new song is from her upcoming album, Manic, which will be released on January 17, 2020 via Capitol Records. Halsey wrote the new heartwrenching track with John Cunningham, who also produced “Clementine.”
The visual features Halsey and her brother, Sevian Frangipane, in an evocative dance routine that was shot at an aquarium. The clip was directed by Dani Vitale, who also choreographed, and Anton Tammi.
Halsey, who performed on the EMMY Awards telecast last weekend, will kick off the first leg of the (Manic) World Tour on February 6, 2020 in Madrid. The headline run includes a March 8 show at The O2 in London. Tickets are now on sale for the select shows. North American tour dates will be announced soon.
Halsey’s new official single, “Graveyard,” amassed more than 50 million combined global streams in its first two weeks of release. The song was the Most Added at Top 40 radio and topped Spotify’s Today’s Top Hits playlist. The accompanying visualizer, which can be seen HERE, is a time-lapse of Halsey creating the painting that will appear on the album’s cover. Stereogum praised “Graveyard” as a “strong pop song about depression and co-dependence” and noted, “Halsey… can sing about stark internal stuff and still make the songs sound like they belong in an arena.”
Fans who pre-order Manic in digital format will instantly receive “Clementine” plus “Graveyard” and her major Platinum hit “Without Me.”
