The track appears to be taken from ‘If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power’, Halsey’s forthcoming new album that is set for release next month.
The LXXXXP game, which can be played here, is a choose-your-own-adventure-style platform that encourages users to “choose your path and discover your destiny”.
Users are met with a series of images to choose from, including ‘The Barley Seeds’, ‘The Royals Plotting’ and ‘The Watchful Owl’. Once six images are selected, the user is then given a ‘destiny’.
