The Weeknd – “King Of The Fall”
Abel Tesfaye, better known as the Weeknd, dropped a new album, Kiss Land, last year, but that hasn’t stopped him from putting out more new music this year. In June we heard “Often,” and now he’s shared “King Of The Fall,” a maximalist bit of R&B built over a bed of synths that shift from pretty to queasy with complete ease. That’s the cover art above, which features Sky Ferreira, though she doesn’t appear on the song (though perhaps we’ll hear something from the two of them later on?). Listen and download it below.
Kiss Land is out now via Republic.
