Post Malone stars as a knight in shining armour in his new medieval-themed video for ‘Circles,’ released on Tuesday, 3 September. The new single is a cut from his forthcoming album Hollywood’s Bleeding, out on 6 September via Republic Records. The video was directed by Colin Tilley and you can check it out below.
In a medieval world that looks like a cross between Game of Thrones and The Elder Scrolls (Game of Thrones costumes, Elder Scrolls lighting), Malone treks through a war-torn land, riding on his noble steed through battlefields and campsites. Along the way, he sees a recurring image of a princess with no mouth, kept captive in a castle. How does Post finally rescue her? Without giving much away, the Grimm Brothers may have the answer.
The singer recently revealed that Hollywood’s Bleeding will feature guest appearances by Ozzy Osbourne, Halsey, Travis Scott, Meek Mill, SZA, Da Baby and more. He previously released the track “Goodbyes,” featuring Young Thug. Post Malone kicks off his Runaway Tour in support of the album on 14 September, at Tacoma, WA’s Tacoma Dome. The tour will run through to 20 November.
Post Malone headlined Reading and Leeds festivals last month, bringing a one-man show full of rock star potential. Of his set, the NME said: “No gimmicks, bells, whistles or tricks – just some fire, a whole lotta love, and one bona fide rock star.”
“From the mad bounce of ‘Wow.’, the sass and swagger of ‘No Option’, the party-starting ‘Candy Paint’ to the sweet balladry of ‘Stay’, he holds these kids in the palm of his hand. Bumbags slung over their shoulders, two fingers in their air, raving throughout, this generation have the Reading Festival headliner that they really want – unfiltered, unchained and just as wild as them.”
At the Leeds leg of the festival, Post also joined his co-headliners Twenty One Pilots on stage to perform a cover of Oasis classic ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’.
