After announcing a new role in upcoming film National Anthem, Halsey has now showed off their acting chops in an epic and cinematic video for Girl Is A Gun.

Taken from last year's incredible If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power album, the infectious track is matched by an equally colourful video, directed by Colin Tilley and written by Halsey.

Referencing Girl Is A Gun in an Apple Music interview last year (via Billboard), Halsey revealed, “Everyone’s like, ‘Oh, it’s like this is a girl power album,’ and I’m like, ‘No, it’s not.' Also, not for nothing, but the lead single is I Am Not A Woman, I’m A God – it’s not a girl power album. From the jump, I’m like, ‘I’m not a woman.’ I’m not saying any of that. There’s no girl power in this album.

"…Being pregnant, writing this album, people are expecting girlishness, you know what I mean? And any time where I ever talk about womanhood, motherhood, femininity, I’m usually talking about it with a taste in my mouth. Like, go be a big girl, a girl is a gun, all I can taste is the blood in my mouth.”
