The Weeknd has unveiled a video for 'Pretty'. Watch it below.

The five-minute clip features nudity, sexually explicit scenes and graphic violence and should definitely be considered NSFW (not safe for work).

'Pretty' is taken from 'Kiss Land', the Weekend's new album which came out on September 9. 'Kiss Land' is the Canadian R&B singer's first album to be released officially, following three mixtapes which were distributed for free online before being packaged as the 'Trilogy' release in 2012.

The Weeknd - real name Abel Tesfaye - has recently remixed 'Royals', the international breakthrough single by New Zealand pop singer Lorde. He is due in the UK this November (2013) for a four-date tour culminating in a massive show at London's O2 Arena.

The Weeknd will play:

NIA Birmingham (November 22)
Manchester O2 Apollo (23, 24)
London 02 Arena (26)
