'Ghost' was posted on Halsey's SoundCloud page for streaming on February 3, 2014.[7] The song garnered online buzz which was an opening opportunity for Halsey to sign a record deal with Astralwerks, leading to the eventual publication of the Room 93 EP and additional videos for 'Hurricane' and 'Ghost'. Halsey expressed about the song, 'The concept of the song itself is about being in a relationship with someone who isn’t emotionally available: you feel their physical presence but the emotional one isn’t there.'[8]

Music videos[edit]

The first music video for 'Ghost', was directed by Alex de Bonrepos and premiered on October 27, 2014. It was filmed at the Pink Motel in Los Angeles, which was also the location of her music video for her song 'Hurricane'. The video begins with her kissing her boyfriend (played by model AJ English)[9] in the motel room, but soon takes a dangerous turn as the two begin to fight.[8]

A second official music video for 'Ghost', featuring the alternative mix, was filmed in Tokyo and was directed by Malia James and Ryan Witt in late May 2015. Halsey said she was satisfied with the outcome. It premiered on June 11, 2015.[10][11][12][13][14][1][15][16]
