The Weeknd has dropped a new music video for ‘Die For You’, which is off his 2016 album ‘Starboy’. The video, a homage to the sci-fi film E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial and Netflix show Stranger Things, features a young boy resembling The Weeknd – real name Abel Tesfaye – hiding out in a garden shed, only to be found by one of the home’s residents, a young girl. Afterwards, it’s learned that the boy is a telekinetic being on the run from government officials. They later discover his location, leading to a dramatic face-off.
The music video arrives as part of Tesfaye’s five-year anniversary celebrations of ‘Starboy’ . The artist has also announced a limited-edition collection of streetwear merchandise with Los Angeles-based brand Seventh Heaven. The five-piece capsule offers fans graphic hoodies, short-sleeve tees, a shoulder bag. It also features premium handmade jackets available in either denim or leather. The collection is available exclusively on The Weeknd’s official store.
