Badlands (stylized in all caps) is the debut studio album by American singer and songwriter Halsey (Ashley Frangipane). It was released on August 28, 2015, by Astralwerks.[1][2] Badlands debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 chart with first-week sales of 97,000 copies. The album was preceded by the release of two singles, "Ghost" and "New Americana". The third single from the album, "Colors", was released on February 9, 2016. A new version of the song "Castle" was released as the album's fourth single to promote the feature film The Huntsman: Winter's War. "Roman Holiday" was featured in the second season of the TV series Younger and "I Walk the Line" was featured in the teaser trailer for the film Power Rangers.

Title and music[edit]

The name "Badlands" refers to Halsey's state of mind while writing the album, to give a physical place as a metaphor for a desolate and lonely mind.[3] Musically, the album is mainly rooted in electropop,[4][5][6] alternative pop,[7] and synth-pop,[8] and features industrial undertones.[4]

Production[edit]

According to Halsey, Badlands is a concept album focusing on the fictional dystopian society known as The Badlands. A desert wasteland surrounds the city, keeping the inhabitants of The Badlands captive.[9] The album was inspired by post-apocalyptic films such as The Fifth Element. After writing the first few songs, Halsey realized the entire concept was a metaphor for her mental state. Halsey states she created the Badlands to escape from her real-life struggles. In her opinion, the metaphor was even with no escape, there is still hope there is somewhere else to go.[9] Lido served as the album's executive producer.[10]

Singles[edit]

"Ghost" was released as Halsey's debut single on October 27, 2014, with an accompanying music video filmed in Tokyo, which was directed by Malia James and Ryan Witt.[11] "Ghost" was released to radio on April 7, 2015.[12] Halsey announced "New Americana" as the second single from the album, which was officially released on July 10, 2015.[13] The official music video for "New Americana" came out on September 25, 2015.[14] "New Americana" peaked at number 60 on the Billboard Hot 100.[15] "Colors" serves as the official third single. It was released to alternative radio on February 9, 2016.[16] The fourth single, "Castle", was released on April 8, 2016, along with a soundtrack version for the film The Huntsman: Winter's War.[17]

ViceA−[22]

In a review for Pitchfork, Nathan Reese wrote, "Reading interviews with Halsey you get the sense of a canny and talented performer, one who legitimately wants to connect with fans. But the public persona only comes through on Badlands in fits and starts, and there isn't a single subversive or original second on the album." About the chorus on "New Americana", he commented "Like most of Badlands, it's calculated, defiant, and, ultimately, hollow."[20] In a short review, Rolling Stone's Joe Levy called Halsey a "new popstar with a knack for sticky imagery".[21] The album was included at number six on Rock Sound's top 50 releases of 2015 list.[23]

Commercial performance[edit]

Signposted by its prominent chart visibility on iTunes, Badlands amassed a healthy number of pre-order sales ahead of its release; according to a Hits Daily Double report, nearly 40,000 by August.[24] The album debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 with a total of 115,000 equivalent units (97,000 in pure album sales), which marked the highest-charting album released by the Astralwerks record company so far.[25] As of June 2017, the album had sold 520,000 copies in the US.[26] In December 2017, it was announced that Badlands had reached one billion streams on Spotify.[27]

The album debuted at number nine on the UK Albums Chart, selling 8,225 copies in its first week. By June 2017, it had sold 106,804 copies in the United Kingdom.[28] Elsewhere, Badlands reached number two in Australia, number three in New Zealand and Ireland, number five in the Netherlands, and number 10 in Belgium (Flanders).
