The Weeknd is back with the hard-hitting "False Alarm," the second single off "STARBOY."

Yesterday, The Weeknd killed off his former self -- and his infamous Basquiat-inspired hairstyle -- in the new video for "Starboy," the first single and title track off his upcoming album. He's now back with the second single off STARBOY, entitled "False Alarm." The new track gives some insight into the overall sound of STARBOY; it should be faster and dancier than Beauty Behind the Madness, but with a similar push in the '80s pop star direction (taking inspiration from MJ, and doing so proudly).

"False Alarm" is a heavier track than the Daft Punk-featuring "Starboy," and not quite as immediately catchy. The content is familiar territory for The Weeknd -- a girl who's the life of the party whose behavior is an (unsuccessful) attempt to blunt her inner-demons. The hook, which finds The Weeknd screaming the song's title while the beat swells into rave mode, should make or break the track, depending on how receptive his fans are to this more punishing sound. 

STARBOY drops on November 25. 

Quotable Lyrics

She loves everybody
Can't you tell by the signs?
She loves everybody
She gets off all the time
It's a dark philosophy
And it haunts her constantly
She's a false alarm to me
She's a false alarm
