The Weeknd unveils dark short film for ‘After Hours’

His album arrives later this month.

The Weeknd has shared a sinister short film for his forthcoming album, After Hours.

The clip opens on the singer as he leaves late-night talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live! in high spirits. His demeanor takes a turn, though, as he walks through the dimly lit city streets. When he finally makes his way to a subway stop, a clearly distraught Abel Tesfaye is possessed by an invisible force that drags him through the tunnel.

The dizzying clip ends with an unusually composed Tesfaye in an elevator, joined by a young couple. However, once the elevator doors close, screams are heard from the carriage as the clip fades to black.


After Hours is due out on March 20. The record will feature previously released songs “Blinding Lights,” “Heartless” and title track “After Hours.”
