The Weeknd is rarely seen out and about, but he always returns with a bang. Eight months after delivering a show-stopping performance at the Super Bowl, the Toronto native has provided an update on his upcoming release. During a recent episode of Memento Mari on Apple Music, the Toronto native revealed that his new album is “complete” and he has “exciting features” that will be released in the fall.
“A lot has been going down, a lot of moving pieces. Been settling in a new home. Been shooting videos. Been working on pre-productions for another world. Working on music for the pre-productions for the other world. Taking time to myself so I don’t completely lose my mind. But now we’re back,” he told fans.
“I hope you had a great summer. Some exciting features coming out in the fall before the album drops. … Some Dawn updates: Album is complete. Only thing that’s missing is a couple of characters who are key to the narrative — some people that are near and dear to me, some people that inspired my life as a child and some that inspire me now. More to come in the following months.”
