The Weeknd has revealed a revealing new video for the song 'Twenty Eight', which appears as one of the bonus tracks on last year's 'Trilogy' compilation – head to The Weeknd's website to watch now, or scroll down.

The clip sees the R&B singer being interviewed by a white-haired man before a spell watching pole dancers gyrate on stage through a one-way mirror. Meanwhile, a ghostly girl sits on a bed. Answers in the comments if you think you can work out what it all means.

Life as The Weeknd is not all about sitting in strip clubs, however. The artist recently took to Twitter to hint at new material to come this year. "If you thought my shit knocked before... 2013," he recently tweeted. He earlier tweeted a picture of his computer desktop, which featured a folder named '2013 untitled album'.

Meanwhile, The Weeknd will head out on his first UK tour in March. He will play four live shows in Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and London.

The jaunt will start at The Ritz in Manchester on March 20, followed by shows at Glasgow O2 ABC and Birmingham HMV Institute, finishing up at London Electric Ballroom on Sunday, March 24.

The singer – real name Abel Tesfaye – spoke to NME following a secret London show in November of last year. Tesfaye said that up until the live shows he only existed in people's bedrooms and iPods. "I make good music for long journeys," he joked. About doing live shows he added: "There was so much pressure coming in. But I've played it well because being off the circuit has allowed me to practise with this band back home in Toronto for months."
