Halsey Takes Tokyo in Her Sultry "Ghost" Music Video

Update (6/11): Halsey's latest visual endeavor has us exploring the sexier parts of Tokyo's underbelly, our blue-haired friend getting up close and personal with another female protagonist. "Is it a friend, a girlfriend, a part of herself?" the singer-songwriter asked the Fader. "I wanted to see some representation of a lesbian relationship that wasn't over sexualized. Just two people in love—or at least they used to be." Watch the "Ghost" video right here.

Original Story (6/10): Halsey, one of the most promising up-and-coming songwriters of late, is gearing up for her debut full-length, BADLANDS following her fantastic Room 93 EP. While we wait, the 20-year-old singer-songwriter has been leaving us little social media gifts here and there. This one might be the best yet.

On Tuesday night Halsey shared a 30-second tease of what appears to be a music video for her single "Ghost."

Those familiar with Halsey have seen a "Ghost" video before, the EP version. That one has Halsey playing a chain-smoking young woman in love with a not-so-ideal partner. Who can't relate?

The Twitter tease is a bit more dynamic, with images of Halsey rolling around in a gorgeous hotel room, overlooking downtown Tokyo. It feels a lot like Lost in Translation, our future pop princess rocking a neon bob like Scarlett Johansson's iconic character. Halsey's, though, is a cool blue rather than pink. Check out the "Ghost" music video tease below, then revisit our tell-all interview with the singer from this year's SXSW.
