Cult track New Americana hits UK

03.02.16

Topping a multitude of polls for best breakthrough act, releasing #2 US charting debut Badlands, selling out Madison Square Garden, featuring on Justin Bieber’s #1 album ‘The Feeling’ and being one of the most streamed artists of the year; 2015 was a colossal year for Halsey (aka Ashley Nicolette Frangipane). Now Halsey is set to release New Americana in the UK, the cult track that has a staggering 55 million Spotify streams and a Hunger Games inspired dystopian action packed video, impacting on February 26th.

Watch the video for America’s new generational theme song, New Americana here:

CULT TRACK NEW AMERICANA IMPACTING UK FEBRUARY 26

OVER 65 MILLION SPOTIFY STREAMS + 10 MILLION PLAYS ON YOUTUBE

SOLD OUT UK TOUR THIS FEBRUARY

“NEW SUPER STAR IN WAITING” – THE GUARDIAN

“IT’S RARE TO SEE SO MANY KIDS LOSE THEIR FUCKING MINDS” - NOISEY

“HALSEY’S NUMBERS ARE OFF THE SCALE. BUT SO IS HER MUSIC” – SUNDAY TIMES

Halsey has quickly emerged as one of the most influential voices of the social media age, releasing her debut album Badlands last year, which hit #1 on iTunes in 30 countries around the world, gaining the #2 spot in the US and a top 10 in the UK. Halsey’s live show hysteria began in 2015 with playing two sold out London shows, a sold out US tour, and now the twenty-one-year old will play an entirely sold out UK tour this February, including a Brixton Academy show, which sold out in less than 30 minutes.

Halsey’s honesty both online and in her youthful lyrics continue to build her ever growing, loyal fanbase. Named one of Spotify’s most influential 25 under 25’s, Rolling Stones 10 New Artists You Need To Know, Forbes 30 Under 30 and becoming a worldwide trending topic on Twitter multiple times, now, Halsey steps into 2016 stronger than ever.
