Halsey dropped the first single from her upcoming album, and it is being met with rave reviews.

The song is titled “Now or Never,” and it is from her upcoming album hopeless fountain kingdom. The album will be released on June 2.

Halsey says that this track is actually part of a bigger narrative as the entire album will tell the story of star-crossed lovers.

"The video for ‘Now Or Never’ is one part in the center of a long narrative that tells the story of two people in love despite the forces trying to keep them apart,”  Halsey said in a statement. “On its own the song is about two impatient young lovers, but in the context of the hopeless fountain kingdom universe, the stakes are much higher for these two star-crossed lovers."

The music video, which marks Halsey’s directorial debut, starts with a strange tarot card reading. It also involves a violent shootout, but it definitely leaves us excited for the upcoming album release.
