We’re only two days away from The Weeknd’s new album! Back in September, we heard its lead single and title track, “Starboy,” followed by “False Alarm”. Last week we got two more songs with “Party Monster” and “I Feel It Coming”. Now fans get a few more song teasers in his new short film, “MANIA.”
The video picks up where “Starboy” left off. The Weeknd is cruising down a winding road as shots of the cat-turned-panther cut in. He arrives at a party, dances a bit while eyes a particular girl, then goes into the fancy restroom to wash up. But a murderous stranger sneaks in with a knife, and just when it looks like The Weeknd is a goner, the black leopard takes action. Covered in blood and probably a bit shocked, The Weeknd and the girl/panther he’s been hanging out with return to the club for some more dancing. Great cinema, for sure!
The video includes clips of six songs: “All I Know” (featuring Future), “Sidewalks,” “Secrets,” “Die For You,” “Party Monster” (featuring Lana Del Rey), and “I Feel It Coming” (featuring Daft Punk). They’re an eclectic mix, ranging from autotuned rap to sweet ’80s pop. Check out “MANIA” below:
Starboy is set for release in just two days, on November 25th, via Republic Records. You can pre-order the album on iTunes now. Keep checking back here for all the latest Weeknd music news.
