Not only can you now stream the new The Weeknd album Kiss Land (out September 10), you can see what the set design will look like for his upcoming tour. In a video for Revolt TV, ones sees Abel Tesfaye art directing the color schemes with a producer as his music plays in the background. He says that he doesn't want video for The Trilogy scenes, and there are mannequins, scenes from his previous music videos, and lots of cool image-doubling. He ends it saying, "Don't do acid at my shows."
The Weeknd's visuals have always taken it to another level, from House of Balloons to The Trilogy and now the Asian anime-inspired Kiss Land. The artist who used to hide his face is now out in the world showing us the creative process behind his art.
