When it comes to visuals, The Weeknd is King!
After releasing two Spotify clips and a short film, the Grammy-winning hit-maker drops the official music video for “Call Out My Name” off his freshly released My Dear Melancholy EP. Directed by frequent collaborator Grant Singer, the brooding visual kicks off with Abel walking around a city at blue hour, while his melancholy single soundtracks his moves.
As the song builds, special effects dazzle throughout, bats fly out of Abel‘s mouth, birds freeze in flight, fire burns through a mystical forest, and mysterious alien-like creatures pop up. It’s bizarre and even a bit disturbing at times.
