The Weeknd is back with “Blinding Lights,” his second release this week. 

The new track, which dropped at midnight, is drenched in synth and has an ‘80s New Wave vibe about it. On it, he sings, “I said, ooh, I'm blinded by the lights/ No, I can't sleep until I feel your touch/ I said, ooh, I'm drowning in the night/ Oh, when I'm like this, you're the one I trust.”

A snippet of “Blinding Lights” recently appeared in a trailer for a Mercedes-Benz commercial.   

It’s the second release from the Toronto native’s forthcoming album, following "Heartless" which arrived Wednesday. Stream it below.
