Originally debuted by The Weeknd during a live performance at SXSW on March 19, 2015 under the title "Mood Music," the song was finally released on May 27, 2015 with a new title: "The Hills."
The spooky-sounding song finds The Weeknd singing of a secret relationship, possibly with a celebrity. The singer is all to aware that now because he is famous, the hills have eyes – i.e., everyone is watching him.
The Weeknd rose to fame quite rapidly in 2015, and in this song he takes the voice of a celebrity who is driven by self-destructive hedonism and has no qualms about it. The song paints of picture of what could happen if he becomes a victim of his success.
