Halsey sparks a revolution with her brand new single New Americana, a sample from her stellar debut LP Badlands (released last month). Just as you'd expect, the music video, which arrives in full Sept. 25, will feature Hunger Games-like expansion, as Halsey herself is the outsider in another land. In the official trailer (below), the grunge-pop singer teases what fans can expect: lots of fire, cinematic chasing, burning at the stake and all-around fighting for her life. There's even a bit of a Divergent overtone, too.

Badlands, which features such standout cuts as Drive, Colors and Roman Holiday, was released late August, to much critical acclaim. You can read our full review right here. Despite little radio airplay, Halsey's fans came out in full force opening week; the album arrived with 115,000 total equivalent albums (97,000 in pure album sales). That's a No. 2 bow on the Billboard 200 and a No. 1 start on Top Alternative Albums.

Badlands is now available on Apple Music.
