Post Malone morphs into a tortured knight in the video for his newest single, “Circles.” It’s a cut off his forthcoming album, Hollywood’s Bleeding.
In the visual directed by Colin Tilley, the rapper trudges through the battlefield in in battered armor, surveying the aftermath of war. He’s haunted by visions of a Rapunzel-esque princess trapped in a tower, whom he discovers hovering above a lake all dressed in red. He reaches out to save her, but she sinks into the water, rendering his efforts fruitless.
The scene then shifts to a shocked Posty observing the burning of corpses while the undead claw at him from behind. “Seasons change and our love went cold / Feed the flame ’cause we can’t let go / Run away, but we’re running in circles / Run away, run away,” he sings, as he burns alive on a funeral pyre of his own.
“Circles” is the latest single from the rapper, who previously dropped a video for the Young Thug-assisted “Goodbyes.” His highly anticipated album Hollywood’s Bleeding will drop this Friday via Republic.
