The Weeknd Unveils 'Mania' Short Film
Published Nov 23, 2016Earlier this week, the Weeknd (a.k.a. Abel Tesfaye) teased a new film titled Mania, and now the 12-minute visual project has arrived in full.
The clip previews tracks from the Weeknd's forthcoming full-length Starboy, pairing the audio snippets with shots reminiscent of the title track's video.
The camera follows Tesfaye from his sleek whip on the road to the dimly lit dancefloor of a club. Things take a grisly, blood-splattered turn halfway through, throwing the rest of the storyline in a much darker direction.
Starboy officially lands on November 25 via XO/Republic. To mark the release, Tesfaye is hosting a listening party and pop-up shop in his hometown of Toronto. Find full details here. You can also see his upcoming tour dates here.
