The Weeknd is turning up the heat on the unveiling of his next album, After Hours, as last night (February 18th) he announced the project’s release date and dropped the title track.

Giving fans just hours of notice before unleashing the third single of the collection, the multi-Grammy-winning artist and his crew posted across social media to spread the word. At midnight, “After Hours” revealed more of the Canadian singer than many expected, with references to past albums, periods of life, and specific lyrics.

This information was revealed through a presale link that not only contained the date, but also noted that After Hours will feature a total of 14 songs.
