Earlier this morning, Benny Blanco dropped by On Air With Ryan Seacrest for an interview to discuss his work and his new song with Halsey and Khalid. During the interview Halsey joined in by phone to talk about Eastside.
Eastside’ [is] so sweet and nostalgic and pure and honest and one of the things that Benny said to me during the process was ‘Hey, it’s really cool that you make concept albums and I love seeing you play a character, … but I think it would be really cool if this was just about Ashley. Like if this wasn’t just a thing about Halsey and a character … you’re pretty cool how you are. Maybe you don’t need all of that this time.’” Halsey shared. “[‘Eastside’] is really personal … I think that’s what makes this song feel really special … It felt really [organic].
Halsey also revealed that Eastside is her favourite song yet.
It’s probably my favorite song I’ve ever made,” she gushed. “Yeah, I’m going to say that on record: This is my favorite song.
and finally the big reveal from the interview: Benny Blanco revealed that he and Halsey are making an album together!
We’re working on an album together, we had worked on her last album and now we working on a new album together and this was just a music baby for the mean time.
