During a live streamed event on Tuesday of the unveiling of HXOUSE, a creative non-profit incubator founded by his creative director La Mar Taylor, The Weeknd heavily hinted that his next album is in the works.
“Being in Toronto these past two days, I haven’t been this inspired in years,” the “Starboy” singer said during the show. “I want you guys to be the first to know that I’m working on my new album right now. Chapter 6 coming soon.” He then followed up with a vague tweet: “Some chapters are smaller than others. not this next one though…”
This larger “chapter” will almost certainly be a bigger project than the six-track My Dear Melancholy EP, released March 30th of this year via XO/Republic. This will also be The Weeknd’s first album drop in two years.
