Halsey just released a new track titled, “Experiment on Me” which is featured on the soundtrack for the new Harley Quinn movie Birds Of Prey. The song is electric with Halsey exploding on vocals with a powerful and demanding shrill. The movie is based on a female superhero who is awakened to her power and fury. Halsey encapsulates this energy in the new single with lyrics like, “Lock up your sons, make way for the daughters. You’ll be the lamb and we’ll be the slaughterer. You’ve burnt the witches, now you’re defenseless. Who needs a Y with this many X’s?” Halsey also recorded a nu-metal song last year with her one-off single “Nightmare.”
Birds Of Prey: The Album also features the likes of Megan Thee Stallion, Normani, Doja Cat, and Saweetie. Bring Me The Horizon also joins Halsey on the new track, “Experiment On Me,” which gives Halsey the perfect metalcore backdrop. She recorded with Bring Me The Horizon late last year on their most recent album, Music To Listen To which showcases their variety of musical style with the multitude of artists they record with. The band features Halsey in the track “¿” which has an electronic and future sounding spin to it. Stereogum describes the new track, “Experiment On Me,” as “a full-fledged heavy rock song, the loudest and most abrasive thing she’s ever released.”
The film, Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) is a 2020 American superhero film based on the DC Comics team Birds of Prey. It is the eighth film in the DC Extended Universe, and both a follow-up to and spin-off of Suicide Squad (2016). The film is directed by Cathy Yan and written by Christina Hodson, and stars Margot Robbie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Rosie Perez, Chris Messina, Ella Jay Basco, Ali Wong, and Ewan McGregor.
The character, Harley Quinn redefines her life after the Joker breaks up with her, throwing her out on the streets of Gotham City. She is taken in by Doc, the elderly owner of a Chinese restaurant. Recovering from her abusive relationship with the Joker, Harley cuts her hair, adopts a spotted hyena (whom she names after Bruce Wayne), takes up roller derby, and blows up the Ace Chemicals plant where she pledged herself to the Joker.

This tour will begin on June 2 at the White River Amphitheatre in Seattle, Washington, and concludes at the FivePoint Amphitheatre in Irvine, California on August 1, 2020.
