Posted on

The Weeknd has another visceral entry in his music video canon.

The R&B singer released his most violent video yet — with a viewer discretion warning at the beginning — on Thursday with “False Alarm.” The video is shot from The Weeknd’s first-person perspective, as he’s a part of a crew robbing a bank. Criminals and cops are both shot in the firefight, but The Weeknd is saved by a hostage.

“False Alarm” is the second single and music video from the singer’s upcoming album, Starboy. The video for the self-titled track begins with a shaved Weeknd strangling a version of himself donning his iconic locks.

See the video above. Starboy is set to be released Nov. 25.
