Weekend announced the new futuristic music video for his 2011 track “Echoes of Silence” on Tuesday (December 21).
Created by artist Hajime Sorayama, the image tells the story of two cyborgs in a dystopian future. “You know talking dirty to me on the phone gets me here / ‘Cause we both want to do this but I can tell you’re scared / ‘Cause you think there’s more to it with us but you know how this will end / It will end how you expect it, girl, you are a sadist and I ask why / And you answer / I like the feeling suspense / Nothing will make me feel this real / So baby don’t come home / I don’t want to spend tonight alone,” born artist Abel Tesfaye plays the piano muted in clips.
The song was originally released on December 21, 2011, as the title track on The Weeknd’s third mixtape. “Here is it,” he shared on Instagram. “On the 10th anniversary of ‘Echoes of Silence,’ the legend @hajimesorayamaofficial brought his robots to life for the first time using my song as the official soundtrack (full video available now), This is a gift for OG fans. Wishing all XO happy holidays… the next time I see you… will be at dawn. ”
