The Knowing (Video) – The Weeknd

27 Nov

Following on from the success of House of Balloons (see Jonah’s previous post here), The Weeknd has just released his first music video, a cinematic 7-minute short for his closing track on that mixtape, The Knowing:

 

Directed my Mikael Colombu (same guy who did videos for Bilal and Cee Lo), it is little wonder that this sci-fi masterpiece looks to literally set-off into the stratosphere, and should easily be able to brush off previous videos, such as Kanye’s Runaway. The gorgeous visuals (anyone up for breaking the world into two?) and intense vocals mean that I would say this is definitely the video of the year so far. Watch and you won’t be disappointed.
