The Weeknd comes alive in his transformative new album Starboy.

The Weeknd has released his new short film Mania. The 12-minute film features snippets of two previously unheard songs from The Weeknd’s upcoming ‘Starboy’ album: ‘All I Know’, which features Future, and ‘Sidewalk’, which features Kendrick Lamar.

The short film was directed by Grant Singer, who recently worked with the Weeknd on the “Starboy” video. 

In the time since dropping the initial release, the R&B singer has generously shared album cuts “Party Monster” with Lana Del Rey, “I Feel It Coming” featuring Daft Punk and “False Alarm.”

The new film features dark and surreal imagery that will keep your eyes glued to the screen  as the “Wicked Games” crooner belts out lyrics about ascendance, love and paranoia. It begins with an appearance from the same panther that graced the screen in Weeknd’s “Starboy” video as a brief clip of his Future collaboration, “All I Know,” begins playing.

He ultimately dances through the credit sequence while performing the Daft Punk-featuring “I Feel It Coming.” 

“Starboy” is scheduled for a Friday, Nov. 25 release. Watch “M A N I A”. Watch Mania below.
