Halsey’s Regal “Castle (The Huntsman: Winter’s War Version)” Video
Halsey has reworked Badlands LP highlight “Castle” for The Huntsman: Winter’s War. The menacing synths of the original have been replaced with strings, which brings the regal anthem squarely into fairytale world of Snow White and evil queen Ravenna. The video arrives today (April 13) and it’s largely comprised of footage from the film. However, the 21-year-old steals the show — looking resplendent in a golden, floor-length gown and crown.
The “New Americana” hitmaker is shaping up to be one of the break-out stars of 2016. Last year, she punched above her weight chart-wise when her debut LP landed at number two on the Billboard 200 with a very impressive first-week tally of 97,000 copies. And there’s a lot of life left in the album between her Huntsman ballad and new single “Colors,” which is slowly but surely gathering steam at pop radio.
