    Halsey has signed to Astralwerks. She is all of 19 and totally awesome. Plus, she is from New Jersey. She dropped her new single "Ghost" and has an EP due this year.

    With left-of-center dark-pop hooks, sultry vocals and unapologetic honesty, Halsey is an undeniable force to be reckoned with both on stage and in the studio.

    On the debut single "Ghost," Halsey explores the tragic and laughable intimacy of human relationships in her signature take-no-prisoners approach.

    Think Ellie Goulding x Lorde.

    Want more info? Okay, we've got it.

    Halsey is New Jersey native Ashley Frangipane. Halsey is an anagram of her first name and is taken from "Halsey" stop on the L train to Brooklyn. It's an appropriate representation of her alter-ego, having been born in New Jersey, but defined by the city of New York. She infuses her sugar-spun pop with a purposefully bitter aftertaste that is quite tongue-in-cheek.

    "I'm ecstatic to have found a home with Astralwerks because they embrace me for who I am, appreciate my honesty, and recognize that an artist needs creative freedom in order to thrive," explains Halsey on her decision to sign to the label. "I'm excited to release 'Ghost' and become part of the family. We've only seen the beginning of what the song can do and I can't wait to see where we can all take it together."

    Listen to the newly re-mastered version of her debut single "Ghost" below.
