On Tuesday (Sept. 10), Halsey debuted the song live at Rihanna's Savage x Fenty NYFW show at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn. Following the show, Halsey tweeted: "There! Are! No! Words! @rihanna just changed the game forever; as she always does. Thank you for letting me witness and be a part of this incredible event."
Eight hours before the song's release, Halsey tweeted a mysterious link to a YouTube live stream of herself painting what turned out to be self-portrait.
She wraps it all up in three minutes with a time-lapse video which accompanies the new release (see below).
"The song is about being in love with someone who is in a bad place and loving them so much that you don't realize that you're going to that bad place with them," she says of the new tune. "It's also about learning to care about yourself enough not to follow them there".
"Graveyard" follows previously released single "Nightmare," and both tunes will be featured on the songstress' upcoming album, Manic, due out Jan. 17, 2020.
