For their fourth studio album, If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power, chart-conquering American singer Halsey recruited the production talents of Nine Inch Nails (Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross). 

On the brand-new album, just as they have in their own latter-day work, Nine Inch Nails punctuate Halsey's strong songwriting – which focuses on newfound love and their recent pregnancy – with alternately beautiful and tense synth-driven atmospherics, and aggro electric guitars that settle perfectly into the fabric of the songs they power.
