Just because it’s November doesn’t mean high key record releases are off the table. Just ask Abél Tesfaye (aka The Weeknd, duh), who’s set to drop his third full-length Starboy tomorrow.
To add fuel to the anticipatory fire, the Toronto heartbreaker has just released a 12-minute short film titled “M A N I A”.
The video features cuts from his latest record played over some cryptic visuals, which include a stupidly expensive car, a panther, a club (no surprises), a girl (again, no surprises) and attempted murder.
The overlayed tracks will whet the appetite of fans, especially the Daft Punk-featuring ‘I Feel It Coming’ which closes out the video.
Not to add more fire to Tesfaye’s blazing ego, but this ridiculously catchy number will give anyone vibes of a certain ’80s pop megastar…
Watch “M A N I A” above. Also, be sure to hit up The Weeknd’s “Starboy” pop-up merch store in Melbourne, Toronto, Berlin and Tokyo from November 25 to 27.
