The Weeknd reveals slow-mo video for ‘King Of The Fall’ – watch

Video accompanies R&B singer's second new track of the year ahead of US tour dates

The Weeknd has unveiled a video for new song ‘King Of The Fall’.

The clip shows The Weeknd, real name Abel Tesfaye, walking around Toronto in slow motion as the song plays. The track is Tesfaye’s second new track of the year, following ‘Often’, which he debuted online last month (July).

The Weeknd recently announced plans for US dates with Schoolboy Q & Jhené Aiko set to take place this autumn, which is also called the King Of The Fall tour.


‘King Of The Fall’ and ‘Often’ are the first new songs from The Weeknd since last year’s ‘Kiss Land’ LP.

Last year, Tesfaye teamed up with US brand ONE Condoms to produce a range of official The Weeknd contraceptives featuring tour logos and artwork from his album. They were distributed at various venues on his autumn tour.
