Cloaked in Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas and Enter The Void vibes.
After breaking his painful musical absence recently with the songs “Heartless” and “Blinding Light,” Abel’s returned yet again with the official video for the former track.
Caught in a hallucinogenic world, the “Heartless” video is imbued with the conflated fingerprints of Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas and the avant garde cult-favorite, Enter The Void. While the aesthetic hinges on vibrant lights and effervescent graphics, much like the latter film, the soul of the Anton Tammi-directed visual draws conceptual parallels with Fear & Loathing, as Weeknd and Metro Boomin (who produced the track) stumble in a drug-induced stupor throughout the strip.
With a cigarette perpetually dangling from his mouth, The Weeknd offers a solid Johnny Depp impersonation, too.
