Halsey celebrated the unveiling of her new album, Manic, with a special album release party in Los Angeles that had her telling the crowd just how personal the record is.
“When I made Manic, I dove into those parts of me that weren’t healed yet and I said, ‘No, I’m not gonna wait ’til later. I’m gonna write about them right now,'” Halsey said from the stage at the Capitol Records headquarters Friday (Jan. 17). “It was the most rewarding thing that I have ever done because you guys have been so unconditionally accepting of that, so thank you for being accepting of me.”
The event featured a performance that included songs from Manic, including the standout closing track “929.”
She introduced the song by confessing, “This is probably the most uncensored song I have ever written in my life, so I’m happy to play it for you guys tonight.”
“Thank you for celebrating with me today,” she wrote on Twitter after the show. “I am so happy to have you.”
