Halsey has revealed that her new album will be released in June and it will be called 'Hopeless Fountain Kingdom'

Halsey has announced her new album will be called 'Hopeless Fountain Kingdom'.

The 22-year-old American singer/songwriter - real name Ashley Nicolette Frangipane - has updated her fans on the release of her new album, which is a follow up to her debut LP 'Badlands'.

She took to Twitter on Tuesday (07.03.17) to tell her 4.02 million followers that her new album would be out in June.

She uploaded a topless photo of herself holding a rose over her shoulder and wrote: "I'm pleased to announce my upcoming album, this june, is titled: hopeless fountain kingdom. see you soon (sic)"

When fans asked whether the topless picture which accompanied the announcement was her album cover, she replied: "Nope! When I'm ready for you to have the album cover, I'm gonna make you find it (sic)".

Her first album, released in August 2015, peaked at number two on the Billboard 200 chart. The debut record which featured hits like 'New Americana' and 'Colors', earned 1.14 million equivalent album units in the US (through March 2) according to Nielsen Music. Of these, 497,000 were in traditional album sales.

Most people will recognise Halsey for her vocals on The Chainsmoker's smash hit 'Closer'.

In the run up to her new music announcement, Halsey has been dropping various hints - including having invited 100 fans to a London church in February to get a taste of what 'Hopeless Fountain Kingdom' will sound like.

The lucky group heard four of her new tracks of which are set to feature on the upcoming album.

She also previously hinted on Twitter "There are big things coming. And I didn't hold anything back."
