BackgroundEdit

As opposed to all his previous works since 2014's Pop Star High, Haus Party Pt. 1 is not tied to any particular narrative or concept.. In reference to this, Hall said "I’m such a musical theater kid -- I think that's my safe haven -- and I feel really confident and comfortable kind of hiding behind costumes or storylines. I decided that this year I really wanted to put out music for the first time that was not directed towards any story or narrative, but just have songs that existed on their own."[1]

He says that the album is dedicated to LGBT culture, especially drag queens and pride. The name "Haus Party" comes from the houses of the gay ball culture.[1]

PromotionEdit

Haus Party, Pt. 1 was available for pre-order along with the first single "Glitter" on May 16, 2019. "Glitter" was previously released on Hall's YouTube channel as a music video sponsored by Google on November 27, 2018.[4]

A music video for "Nails, Hair, Hips, Heels" was released on May 23, 2019.[5] An official remix featuring American singer Ciara was released as a single and included on the follow-up EP Haus Party, Pt. 2. A music video for "I Like Boys" was released on June 28, 2019.[6]

To promote the EPs, Hall embarked on the Haus Party Tour in October and November of 2019.[7]
