Halsey is gearing up for an exciting start to 2020 as she will be releasing her third full-length album, Manic, and to hold fans over until they can get their hands on the full record, she shared two tracks from the upcoming LP: "Finally // beautiful stranger" and "SUGA's Interlude."
On acoustic guitar heavy "Finally // beautiful stranger," Halsey sings about a new relationship. She says in the chorus, "Beautiful stranger, here you are in my arms and I know/ That beautiful strangers only come along to do me wrong/ And I hope, beautiful stranger, here you are in my arms/ But I think it's finally, finally, finally, finally, finally safe/ For me to fall."
Meanwhile on "SUGA's Interlude," which features BTS' Suga, Halsey sings emotional lyrics, "I been trying all my life/ To separate the time/ In between the having it all/ And giving it up, yeah (Hey)/ I wonder what's in store/ If I don't love it anymore (Hey)/ Stuck between the having it all/ And giving it up, yeah (Hey)," while Suga raps his verse in Korean.
In supporting Halsey's new songs, Taylor Swift took to her Instagram stories to share how she felt about the new music. Posting a screenshot of "Finally // beautiful stranger," Swift wrote, "These lyrics just wow" and "Absolutely stunning."
Manic is set to be released on January 17, 2020 and showcases 16 songs in total, including "Finally // beautiful stranger" and "SUGA's Interlude," along with other previously released songs like "Without Me," "Clementine" and "Graveyard." The album also includes "Alanis' Interlude" which features Alanis Morissette and "Dominic's Interlude" featuring Dominic Fike.
