Updated July 7, 2007:In an Instagram post, Halsey confirmed thatI Don't Want Love if I Can't LoveThe album will be released August 27. The album cover was also revealed by her. It is heavily influenced almost entirely by Renaissance-era imagery at the Uffizi Gallery. She explained that this album was a concept album about pregnancy and childbirth. "It was important to me that my journey through the last few months be conveyed in the cover art. The paradox of the Madonna/the Whore. Both the idea of me as a sexual being, and my body as a gift and vessel to my child can co-exist peacefully. This image represents how I am reclaiming my autonomy as well as my strength and pride as a life force for my human child.
Halsey stated that the cover photo "celebrates postpartum and pregnant bodies as something beautiful, which can be admired." There is still much to be done in eradicating social stigma surrounding breastfeeding and bodies. This is a small step in the right direction, I hope.
