Halsey is dropping a new single and a big backstory of a private health battle that she says almost took her life.

In an Instagram slideshow announcing the arrival of her new song, “The End,” Halsey shared a series of videos featuring her receiving medical treatment, in tears and in pain, along with glimpses of her making music in the studio. She captioned the post: “long story short, i’m Lucky to be alive. short story long, i wrote an album. it begins with The End. out now.”
