Simon & Schuster announced it will be publishing the singer’s debut collection of poetry, called I Would Leave Me If I Could, on November 10, 2020.
The autobiographical poems will tackle subjects including doomed relationships, family ties, sexuality, mental illness and feminism.
I wrote a few thousand sentences but am somehow struggling to string together a single one to summarize how excited I am about this. “I Would Leave Me If I Could.”, my first collection of poetry, is available for pre-order now. https://t.co/HqIrJJ8joM pic.twitter.com/0ImCfVVNuI

“Poetry infuses everything Halsey does—from music to painting and performing—so it’s hardly a surprise she’s so gifted with verse,” Stephanie Frerich, Executive Editor at Simon & Schuster, says in a statement. “We were immediately captivated by her poems the way millions are by her music.”
The book’s cover art features Halsey’s original painting, “American Woman.” Halsey will also voice the audio book.
