We won’t have to wait too long to hear what a Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross-produced Halsey album sounds like.

The pop star’s upcoming record If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power, which was produced by the Nine Inch Nails duo, is due out next month, on August 27. 

Halsey, who revealed in January that she’s pregnant, describes If I Can’t Have Love as a “concept album about the joys and horrors of pregnancy and childbirth.” That’s certainly reflected in the record’s cover artwork, which features Halsey sitting on a throne with a baby on her lap and one of her breasts exposed.

“It was very important to me that the cover art conveyed the sentiment of my journey over the past few months,” Halsey says. “The dichotomy of the Madonna and the Whore.”

Halsey has previously collaborated with rock artists including Bring Me the Horizon, Travis Barker, Machine Gun Kelly and Yungblud. Her early single “New Americana” was a top-20 hit on Billboard‘s Alternative Airplay chart.
