The Weeknd has unveiled a brand-new song, 'King Of The Fall'. The track is Abel Tesfaye's second new track of the year, following 'Often', which he debuted online last month.

He recently announced plans for US dates set to take place this autumn, which is also called the King Of The Fall tour. 

The two tracks are the first new songs from The Weeknd since last year's Kiss Land LPTesfaye told Complex magazine that Kiss Land had a lot in common with horror movies, saying: "A lot of it is inspired by filmmakers like John Carpenter, David Cronenberg and Ridley Scott, because they know how to capture fear. That's what 'Kiss Land' is to me, an environment that's just honest fear."

He continued: "I don't know who I am right now and I'm doing all these outlandish things in these settings that I'm not familiar with. To me, it's the most terrifying thing ever. So when you hear the screams in the record and you hear all these horror references and you feel scared, listen to the music, because I want you to feel what I'm feeling. 'Kiss Land' is like a horror movie."

'King Of The Fall' harks back to the greatness of Trilogy, in the way that Abel's vocals and stinging lyrics are centre stage. Don't be fooled by his soft falsetto tones, these new tracks are as dirty as ever keeping in line with topics of, excuse the cliche, sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll.
