Halsey made their fourth appearance as Saturday Night Live‘s musical guest last night, where they performed two songs off their latest album If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power. The pop star sang their latest single “I am not a woman, I’m a god” for their first selection, donning a futuristic suit on a sci-fi set thought up by filmmaker Michel Gondry. Halsey was joined by Lindsey Buckingham for their second song, “Darling.” (The legendary guitarist is also featured on the recorded version of the track.) The aesthetic of that performance couldn’t be more different from the former. Both musicians stood regally behind their microphones, with Halsey channeling Buckingham’s former bandmate Stevie Nicks’ haunting look.
SPIN called Halsey’s Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross-produced fourth album “an industrial-leaning masterpiece” in a recent review, which you can read here.
