The soundtrack to your week has arrived.

Halsey’s new album Manic will well and truly be stuck in your head by the end of the week, with the singer picking up triple j’s Feature Album this week.

We named Halsey’s third LP our Album Of The Week, noting that, "while [Halsey's] previous records have been heavily concept-based, revolving around explorations of fantasy worlds with storylines and themes that link each track together, Manic is deeply personal.”

She also joined The Green Room with Neil Griffiths last week from LA to share insight into the release, teasing an Australian headline tour in the process.

Mac Miller's posthumous album, Circles, will also feature heavily on the youth broadcaster this week, following his passing from an accidental drug overdose in 2018.
