The Weeknd unveils new song 'Often' - listen
The track is the first material from Abel Tesfaye since last year's 'Kiss Land' album
Click below to listen to the track, which is the first new material from the singer since the release of his LP 'Kiss Land' last year.
Last summer, The Weeknd – real name Abel Tesfaye – told Complex magazine that 'Kiss Land', had a lot in common with horror movies, saying: "A lot of it is inspired by filmmakers like John Carpenter, David Cronenberg, and Ridley Scott, because they know how to capture fear. That's what 'Kiss Land' is to me, an environment that's just honest fear."
He continued: "I don't know who I am right now and I'm doing all these outlandish things in these settings that I'm not familiar with. To me, it's the most terrifying thing ever. So when you hear the screams in the record and you hear all these horror references and you feel scared, listen to the music because I want you to feel what I'm feeling. 'Kiss Land' is like a horror movie."
