The Weeknd Releases Two Music Videos for ‘My Dear Melancholy’
On Thursday night (March 29), the Weeknd unveiled surprise EP My Dear Melancholy. Now, he's returned with two new music videos for the project.
The first, for "Call Out My Name" — a track rumored to be about Selena Gomez — features a woman passed out on a stage as a series of TVs play behind her. The Weeknd sings on-screen, and as she slowly wakes up, she begins to crawl toward him, later retreating to lie down again.
The second, for "Try Me," is a similarly moody, abstract cut, following the Weeknd throughout his night as he lip-syncs into the camera from a car. He then pulls back to reveal a group of women with eerie, glowing eyes hugging and kissing behind him.
Like Taylor Swift's recently debuted "Delicate" video, also released early on Friday (March 20), the visuals are both styled vertically.
My Dear Melancholy follows the Weeknd's Grammy-winning 2016 album, Starboy. It features production from Daft Punk’s Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, Gesaffelstein, Mike WiLL Made-It, Skrillex, and Frank Dukes. A physical version of the EP will be released on April 13.
