Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have found their next wholly unexpected project.
The Nine Inch Nails duo will produce the next album from Halsey, titled If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power.
The pop star announced the news in a tweet Monday, simply reading, “If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power. The FOURTH album by Halsey. Produced by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.”
Halsey, by the way, is a big rock fan, having shared her love for My Chemical Romance and collaborated with the likes of Bring Me the Horizon, Machine Gun Kelly, Yungblud and Travis Barker. In an interview with Vogue last November, she revealed that she wanted to record a punk album, saying that it “needs to come naturally.”
Halsey was also considered an alternative artist before she became a giant pop star. She peaked in the top 20 on Billboard‘s Alternative Airplay chart with her 2015 single, “New Americana.”
For Reznor and Ross, collaborating with Halsey is the latest in a long line of surprising endeavors, including scoring, and winning an Oscar for, the Pixar film Soul, and winning a Country Music Award for the Nine Inch Nails sample on Lil Nas X‘s “Old Town Road”
