VMAN36 cover star The Weeknd has just released “False Alarm,” the second track off his forthcoming album, Starboy.

"False Alarm" is an electro-rock dance anthem with layered vocals that build atop steady percussion, climaxing right into screams and a fist-pumping chorus. The track comes as a follow up to this week's self-destructive music video for the album's lead single, “Starboy,” featuring Daft Punk, who Tesfare tapped for production on the record, due November 25.

Last night, The Weeknd also announced his partnership with Puma, and his new line for PumaXO. The collection is due in 2017, making him the next in line of Puma’s celebrity collaborators following RiRi, who just showcased her second season of the Fenty Puma line, Kylie Jenner, and hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd.

In addition to performing on the season premiere of SNL this Saturday, The Weeknd will take the stage at the Meadows Festival, alongside Kanye West, Chance the Rapper, KYGO, and more top acts.
