Halsey has revealed the cover art for her fourth studio album.

Self penned and recorded alongside producers Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross of Nine Inch Nails, 'If I Can't Have Love, I Want Power' will arrive on August 27.

The vocalist first unveiled the striking artwork with a short film shot at New York's Metropolitan Museum Of Art, before showing off the image on social media, where she also confirmed the record's release date. She said:

"This album is a concept album about the joys and horrors of pregnancy and childbirth. It was very important to me that the cover art conveyed the sentiment of my journey over the past few months. The dichotomy of the Madonna and the Whore. The idea that me as a sexual being and my body as a vessel and gift to my child are two concepts that can co-exist peacefully and powerfully. My body has belonged to the world in many different ways the past few years, and this image is my means of reclaiming my autonomy and establishing my pride and strength as a life force for my human being.

"This cover image celebrates pregnant and postpartum bodies as something beautiful, to be admired. We have a long way to go with eradicating the social stigma around bodies & breastfeeding. I hope this can be a step in the right direction!"

Halsey, who is currently pregnant with her first child, first announced the follow-up to 2020's 'Manic' at the end of June, posting a cryptic tweet revealing its title and the involvement of the Oscar-winning industrial titans.
