12 O'Clock Track: The Weeknd returns with 'King of the Fall'

Posted By on 07.25.14 at 12:00 PM

I get excited every time a new Weeknd song is released. Earlier this week the Toronto R&B singer posted "King of the Fall," today's 12 O'Clock Track, online as a promotion for his upcoming tour of the same name—as I anticipated, it's really great. It's a classic Weeknd jam: Abel Tesfaye sounds like a drugged-out, outer space version of Michael Jackson, his sweet croon going on about sex and substance abuse, creating a beautiful and uncomfortable juxtaposition between pretty and depraved. The Weeknd is yet to put out a bad song, and this one just makes me want more. You can hear "King of the Fall" below.
