The Weeknd’s “Wanderlust” Lyric Video: Watch
After headlining his own tour in the US and opening for Drake over in Europe, The Weeknd is back on that promo grind with a lyric video for Kiss Land standout “Wanderlust.” Fitting in with his whole “seedy neon nights” aesthetic for this album cycle, the lyrics appear in glowing fonts in dark alleyways and on dilapidated building facades.
To me, this was the most intriguing song of the LP, simply because it abandoned all of Abel Tesfaye’s usual tricks (ya know, the stuff that came to define “PBR&B”), resulting in something more dance-oriented than any of his previous material. But despite the song’s flickering churn, the lyrics here emphasize that it’s a song that takes as nihilistic a view of love as any of his prior cuts.
