In anticipation for his upcoming album, The Weeknd just released his short film M A N I A online. Los Angeles-based music video director Grant Singer was in charge of putting together the 12-minute film, that is soundtracked with songs from The Weeknd‘s forthcoming STARBOY album. Known for his work that is defined by its imperfections and the gritty reality of the world around us; the visuals created by Singer begin with a peaceful drive into the sunset that quickly turns into a dark morbid scene. The Weeknd’s STARBOY album will be released this Friday, November 25th. Press play below to watch The Weeknd‘s M A N I A .
