The Weeknd continues to tease his highly anticipated new album, After Hours, most recently by releasing a complementary short film of the same name. Directed by Anton Tammi, the five-minute clip follows the Toronto signer-songwriter as he leaves the stage following his performance of “Blinding Lights” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and ventures out into the late night streets of Los Angeles.
The video arrives as After Hours track “Blinding Lights” just became The Weeknd’s seventh number one on Billboard’s Hot R&B Songs chart, accounting for the most of any artist. The tune is also unmistakably beloved overseas, as it has been the number one airplay song in Germany and France for seven-plus consecutive weeks, while recently reaching number one in Australia.
“Blinding Lights” joins “Heartless” and title track “After Hours” to appear on The Weeknd’s upcoming fourth studio album. Following the release of the LP on March 20, the 30-year-old musician will embark on a massive 62-date world tour across the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, and France.
