Halsey’s fourth studio album will be titled If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power. The “Sorry” singer announced the title via a social media post while revealing that the record will be produced by Nine Inch Nails (NIN) duo Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.

The announcement also featured a snippet of Halsey’s new song in which she sings: “All of this is temporary” while a grueling industry instrumental plays in the background. The post didn’t include a release date for the album.

If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power will follow Halsey’s 2020 studio effort Manic. The album received positive reviews and debuted on No. 2 on the U.S. Billboard 200 charts. Since then, the 26-year-old singer made several guest appearances on songs from Juice WRLD, Machine Gun Kelly, and others.

Reznor hasn’t been active as a producer outside NIN for a while. His most recent works include serving as a co-producer on Saul Williams’ The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of NiggyTardust! in 2007 and producing few songs for Jane’s Addiction in 2009.

Ross, on the other hand, co-produced Jehnny Beth’s critically-acclaimed debut effort To Love Is to Live, in 2020.

Besides working together on NIN’s music, Reznor and Ross also teamed up to make a number of music scores in recent years. This included HBO’s Watchmen, Netflix’s Mank, and Pixar’s Soul.
