The Weeknd’s “The Hills” describes a love (or maybe just a lust) that’s sincere, but enhanced by intoxication. He only calls when he’s messed up, but that’s the real him.

For the visual, Abel and a female companion escape a flipped ’80s Lincoln Towncar, to walk away alive, barely. Dim lighting, slow motion, and explosions accentuate the sleepy, psychedelic stylings of the song that describes many relationships.

With all this new music, think there’s a new album up the singer’s sleeve after all?
