The Weeknd released his long-awaited new album, After Hours, just a couple weeks ago. It’s an impressive record, and has launched the singles “Heartless,” “Blinding Lights,” and “In Your Eyes” – each with a music video. The Weeknd has since updated After Hours with three additional bonus tracks, plus shared an EP of remixes and the live recording of “Scared To Live” from SNL. Following the videos for the first three singles – plus the short film for After Hours – The Weeknd is now back with a music video for “Until I Bleed Out,” the closing track on standard editions of his new album.
“Until I Bleed Out” fades in, bleary and hazy like earlier songs on the album. Though it builds up halfway through, it remains a slow and dark outro. It promises no happy endings here, and is a fitting close to an often murky album.
Its music video follows where the previous videos from this era left off. In the “Until I Bleed Out” video, the kaleidoscopic colors fade into focus as slowly as the music. Eventually, we find The Weeknd in an elegant room, confetti falling as people enjoy the party. But The Weeknd is clearly in a bad place, the room spinning around him as he stumbles down and chokes on confetti. People around him fight, and all he wants is to escape into the cold expanse of a snow-covered field.
