The Weeknd debuts new song ‘King Of The Fall’ – listen

The Weeknd has unveiled a brand-new song, ‘King Of The Fall’.

The two tracks are the first new songs from The Weeknd since last year’s ‘Kiss Land’ LP. 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.”
