The star has created a visual for his track 'Rolling Stone', which featured on his second mixtape Thursday released back in August 2011.
In an open letter, The Weeknd - real name Abel Tesfaye - explained that the clip represents how he feels and where he stands as an artist.
"I want to thank you for listening and being patient for as long as you have," he wrote. "No matter what an artist's ego clouds them to believe, you are the reason why I have been able to continue to do what I love to do and that is to entertain you.
"My journey for inspiration may seem like masochism to others who have not been given the task to make art, but best believe it brings me nothing but joy."
Speaking about his new video, he added: "Because I am a man of few words, I chose to make a viral video to show you how I felt and where I stand.
"I usually don't like to 'spoon feed' my audience because I grew up idolising story tellers who tell stories using symbolism, so it was in my nature to do the same.
"The 'Rolling Stone' video takes place in a dimly lit studio which represents the two worlds I have been stuck in. The gloomy side represents the mainstream world while the other side represents the underground. The girl holding on represents you."
The Weeknd will release his three mixtapes House Of Balloons, Thursday and Echoes Of Silence as his official debut album Trilogy.
The collection will also include three new tracks and feature 30 songs in total. It will be released in the UK on November 12 and a day later in the US.
