The Weeknd has released the highly anticipated video for his recent summer hit “Often” in late August. “Often” has been lauded by the likes of MTV, Stereogum, Revolt, Buzzfeed, Hypetrak and more and is just a taste of what’s to come. Directed by Sam Pilling, the video takes place in a surreal hotel environment profiling an after party that never ends. The Weeknd is also back on the road this fall for five exclusive shows. Joined by ScHoolboy Q and Jhené Aiko, the alternative R&B trend-setter has readied his most immerse and inventive production yet. The run, which saw many of the dates sell out within an hour of the on-sale, begins September 19th at Barclays Center in New York.
The Weeknd’s last major jaunt, “The Fall Tour”, attracted unanimous critical acclaim and hit sold out venues around the globe. Along the way, the artist and producer has become one of the world’s most electrifying, enigmatic, and engaging performers with his dynamic voice and cinematic presentation captivating audiences everywhere. Upon release last year, The weeknd’s sophomore opus Kiss Land [XO/Republic Records] captured the #1 spot on iTunes Top Albums chart and debuted at #2 on the Billboard Top 200. Meanwhile, his epic 2012 debut, Trilogy, reached platinum status and garnered rave reviews from the likes of Pitchfork, Entertainment Weekly, The Guardian, and more.
In addition to these shows, TheWeeknd is preparing to seduce listeners yet again with brand new music planned for later this year.
