When I stray too far from home, I return to you every single time. NIGHTMARE is coming May 17th and I’ve waited so long to see you. sweet dreams."

Last week, the 24-year-old announced a string of intimate concert appearances in NYC this month, with more stops planned for California and a final show at Wembley Stadium. (Get the dates here.) For a few nights only, these shows would see Halsey performing her first two albums, Badlands and Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, in their entirety as a tribute both eras.

It was also around that time when the musician first hinted at her "Nightmare" project when she invited fans to explore their worst nightmares on an interactive website. Once on the webpage, fans were asked to choose from an option of nightmares they've experienced to learn more about its meaning.

Some fans took these as clues to what's to come on Halsey's third album, which she's confirmed herself, will be "a loud one."
