The Weeknd Announces New Album + Collaborators: Due Out 1.07

The Weeknd has teamed up with Jim Carrey, Quincy Jones, Tyler, the Creator, Lil Wayne, and Oneohtrix Point Never for his brand new album Dawn FM, to be released this Friday (1.07.22)

In typical furtive form, The Weeknd took to Instagram with a teaser clip of the newest incarnation of Abel Tesfaye who pulls up in a black ride, only to be wicked away by several cloaked figures. The superstar then blinks into a bright light, a woman undulates, a spooky figure in red appears, and what sounds to be actor/comedian Jim Carrey’s voice states: “You are now listening to 103.5 Dawn FM. You’ve been in the dark for way too long. It’s time to walk into the light and accept your fate with open arms.

The announcement follows several days of the artist taking to social media and teasing with slick references to “dawn” and a screen cap of a text message hinting at new music. In recent weeks, The Weeknd has also dropped new music with FKA Twigs and a posthumous song with Aaliyah. He’s also recently teamed up with Post Malone and Rosalía.
