Update: The Weeknd's "False Alarm" is here! Listen to the rock-tinged, hand-clappy, sing-along-on-the-first-try–able track via Spotify below:

The Weeknd's last eight days have been very Starboy-ish. First he announced the album, due Nov. 25, with some vivid cover art and a new haircut; then, the fantastic title track, featuring Daft Punk; yesterday, the gripping video.

At some point today, as revealed on Twitter? The Weeknd's second Starboy single, "False Alarm," a very emoji-ready title.

No word yet on when The Weeknd will drop "False Alarm," but we'll keep you posted. Meanwhile, he'll play host for this weekend's SNL Season 42 opener, with Margot Robbie as host.

At the beginning of the month, The Weeknd told VMAN magazine, "I think it’ll be the best-sounding album I’ve ever done," adding that PrinceTalking HeadsThe SmithsBad Brains all "play roles."
