Thanks to his fourth album, After Hours, The Weeknd had a huge year in 2020. Some might have anticipated the artist to take a break before embarking on a massive world tour next year. He’s been suggesting that he’s intending to release new music for a few months, and he hinted at it again on Tuesday.
The Weeknd seems to confirm that a new project could emerge before the After Hours tour in a series of tweets. He remarked, “We getting there [CD emoji],” and added, “Really proud of this one.” Wow… Massaging it now, being sweet to it. Giving it some tlc…” The singer then clarified what to expect. “Just so there’s no confusion, it’s a full body of work… [sunset emojis],” he wrote referencing “the dawn,” which he teased at the Billboard Music Awards back in May. He added, “The tour is gonna be MADNESS.”
The Weeknd first started teasing new music en route through a string of tweets back in April. “Made so much magic in the small quarantined room,” he wrote in one tweet before adding, “nothing’s ever random… now just piecing it all together… it’s so beautiful.”
