While a high school gym might not seem like the most natural setting for a club, leave it up to The Weeknd to make it happen.
Complete with voguish, soaring dancers and a Michael Jackson-esque dance break, a new music video released by the chart-topper crooner is accompanied by a remixed version of “Sacrifice,” appearing on his new Dawn FM album. Remixers Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello of Swedish House Mafia circle dramatically in the background as their mystifying rework swirls across the scene. Meanwhile, a moody visual filter pulls out rich color tones and adds to the video’s vintage feel.
“Sacrifice” samples Alicia Myers’ 1981 single “I Want to Thank You.” It’s part of The Weeknd’s new Dawn FM (Alternative World) record, which acts as a deluxe version of the critically acclaimed Dawn FM. An Agents of Time remix of “Take My Breath” also appears on the expanded album alongside The Weeknd’s collaboration with Swedish House Mafia, “Moth To A Flame”.
