The Weeknd has revealed the video for his track ‘Can’t Feel My Face.’
Directed by Grant Singer, who also directed the video for his track ‘The Hills’, the video sees the Canadian R&B singer perform the single on a small club stage.
The track is taken from his forthcoming third album ‘Beauty Behind The Madness’, which has an expected release date of August 28, although this has not been officially confirmed. The album has already peaked at Number One on the iTunes pre-order chart and its three singles, ‘Often’, ‘The Hills’ and ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ have all been certified platinum.
‘Can’t Feel My Face’, is a collaboration with legendary pop songwriter Max Martin, who has previously worked with the likes of Britney Spears, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift.
Ed Sheeran recently let slip that The Weeknd’s new album – his follow-up to 2013’s ‘Kiss Land’ – will only include one ‘feature’, apparently a collaboration with Kanye West. However, the collaboration has yet to be confirmed by either West or The Weeknd.
Last week (July 21), The Weeknd revealed new song ‘Mood Music 2’ during an intimate gig on Essex’s Osea Island. His only UK show of 2015, the intimate and exclusive gathering was made up of 200 competition winners and around 200 industry, staff and media guests. Watch footage from the show here.
Meanwhile, Tom Cruise recently showed off his lip syncing skills to The Weeknd‘s ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ on Jimmy Fallon’s US chat show.
“My first song has been on the top of the charts all summer long, it’s the song of the summer,” Cruise told the audience before launching into a lip sync rendition of the popular R&B hit. Cruise also performed a lip sync to Meat Loaf‘s ‘Paradise By The Dashboard Light’, a song which he said reminded him of “hanging out in the parking lot on Friday night” with the girls of New Jersey during his high school years.
