The Weeknd Announces Short Film 'Mania', Watch The Stealth Trailer
Smooth operator Abel Tesfaye, aka The Weeknd, has been lightly treading the path to reinvention over the course of his STARBOY release. The bro chopped off his signature wig, got Daft Punk to hype his sound, and made a video in which he destroys his old self.
Now, the new Abel has announced a ~visual project~ called MANIA. Judging by the trailer it is a dark, sexy, dramatic sitch full of big cats, sports cars and neon lights.
Abel hasn't named a release date, or any major details about the project, aside from the fact that Grant Singer sat in the director's chair. Grant worked on the clips for 'Starboy', 'Can’t Feel My Face' and 'The Hills', so you can expect more of that ish.
