The Weeknd Premieres New Video ‘Rolling Stone’
After years of being an enigma in the realm of R&B, it looks like we finally get to hear and see what Abel Tesfaye (aka the Weeknd) is going to bring to the music game. The newly-signed artist on Universal Republic just released his new video for ‘Rolling Stone.’
The simple black-and-white visual features the Canadian singer crooning while sitting in front of the camera. The song itself is gentle with minimal production — just an acoustic guitar riff and Weeknd’s feathery falsetto.
The first segment features a woman draping her arms around his shoulders, which is similar to the cover art of Weeknd’s debut album ‘Trilogy.’ The collection, which hits stores on Nov. 13, consists of re-mastered versions of all three of Weeknd’s popular mixtapes — ‘House of Balloons,’ ‘Thursday’ and ‘Echoes of Silence’ — plus, three new songs.
You can catch the Weeknd currently supporting Florence + the Machine on their U.S. tour. Later in October, the singer will headline his own jaunt beginning Oct. 16. Tickets are available at ticketmaster.com.
