After a remarkable year in 2020 where The Weekend recorded the highest selling single of the year with 'Blinding Lights' he's kicked off 2021 with a new video for his song, 'Save Your Tears'. His latest short comes only days into the new year and is the official video for a song originally included on his album from last March, 'After Hours'.
Following numerous singles and remixes last year, including songs with Sabrina Claudio, Calvin Harris and Juice WRLD, The Weekend is back performing a solo track from his sixth, and most successful, album to date. The Canadian singer, soon to be celebrating his 30th birthday, is flush with success at the moment and rightly so.
'Blinding Lights' was a global hit and had a very broad appeal but overall it was a piece of pure pop perfection. With it's 80's feel of A-ha keys, up beat rhythm and feel good factor The Weekend delivered a worthy chart topper that is sure to stand the test of time. The irresistible looping keyboards paired with the high vocal delivery are a sure fire winner.
The Weekend's latest release does not have quite such a high tempo but it does have a similar revolving keyboard sequence and shares similarities in it's retro referencing production. As ever it is Abel Makkonen Tesfaye's vocal that carries the song. His effortless performance is once again smooth and silken.
His latest video, to accompany the song, is set in what looks like a dimly lit church where his masked audience are sat at tables illuminated by eye ball lights. Think 'Eyes Wide Shut' meets Tim Burton! The video interpretation of the song is a lot darker than the vibe you get from just listening to the song, let's put it that way.
