The Weeknd Releases Short Film, ‘Mania’

Just in time for Thanksgiving, the Weeknd unveiled his new short film “Mania” on Wednesday morning.

Earlier this week, the singer-songwriter teased the release of a new video via Twitter, followed by promotional shots and clips from the piece. The 12-minute video, directed by Grant Singer, features new music from the singer’s forthcoming album “Starboy” and includes visuals previously utilized by the artist, such as the black panther seen in the opening shot and the red sports car used in his “Starboy” music video.

“Mania” is produced by Saul Germaine and Nina Soriano. The short film features the songs “All I Know,” “Sidewalks,” “Secrets,” “Die For You,” “Party Monster,” and “I Feel It Coming” from the upcoming record. It also includes collaborations with Future, Kendrick Lamar, Lana Del Rey, and more.

The release follows his highly publicized American Music Awards performance with Daft Punk on Sunday. Fans can barely contain their excitement over the new video.

“Starboy is about to be the best album of the decade! #Starboy @theweeknd,” writes one user.

“Starboy” is scheduled for a Friday, Nov. 25 release. Watch “M A N I A” above or click here.
