It seems that The Weeknd is ready to move on from his old persona, if his new music video is anything to go by.

Abel Tesfaye has made the video for 'Starboy', his collaboration with Daft Punk, available online and it sees the R&B musician reinventing himself as the titular character, forgoing his old dreadlocked quiff for a sleeker style.

The stylish video - which was controversially nominated for an MTV EMA before it was even released - briefly features his collaborators in portrait-form, but it's mostly about him symbolically 'killing' his former self for this new album.
