The Weeknd’s “False Alarm” Video Looks Like an Action-Packed Movie
The Weeknd is back with another new song and video from his upcoming Starboy album, and this time it's for his "False Alarm" record. You can watch the video above.
The visual looks straight out of an action-packed movie, complete with explosions and shootouts. It's shot from a first-person viewpoint, and in the end it's revealed we're seeing things from Weeknd's perspective.
"False Alarm" is the second single off Weeknd's upcoming album, which is set to drop Nov. 25. Daft Punk assisted Abel on the album's jamming first eponymous single, which is currently sitting pretty at No. 2 on the Hot 100 chart.
Few details have been revealed about the upcoming Starboy album, but in a profile for VMAN magazine, Weeknd said influences on the LP include The Smiths, Bad Brains, Talking Heads, Prince, and DeBarge.
"We wrote it all in Los Angeles," he said of the new album. "I think it’ll be the best-sounding album I’ve ever done. It’s hard to label the sound because, when I first came out, nobody would label it R&B. I just want to keep pushing the envelope without it feeling forced.”
