The Weeknd recently shared a new music video for his latest single ‘Party Monster’.

The Canadian R&B artist’s latest album ‘Starboy’ has been promoted by a string of cinematic visuals including the graphic short film ‘Mania’ and videos for previous singles ‘False Alarm’ and the Daft Punk-featuring title track.

Meanwhile, London Grammar shared their new single ‘Rooting For You’ on January 1, marking the group’s first new music since debut album ‘If You Wait’ in 2013.

The band shared the song via their Facebook and Twitter accounts, with Phil Taggart revealing he will be premiering the song on his BBC Radio 1 show tonight (January 1st).

Two versions of the song were released. The first is a radio-friendly cut, whilst the band also shared a live version, featuring around two minutes of acappella and a live orchestra.
