“Call Out My Name” is the opening track from The Weeknd’s brand new EP My Dear Melancholy. The project sees a return to the sorrow that initially attracted audiences to The Weeknd’s music. My Dear Melancholy stylistically stands out from his earlier Trilogy project with poppy beat patterns and funky synths. “Call Out My Name” boasts a waltz-like rhythm and allows the angelic vocals to shine.
