The Weeknd has announced that his new album Dawn FM will be released later this week on Friday.
The 31-year-old singer, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, first teased the album over the New Year weekend with a screenshot of a text message exchange in which he decides to “just drop the whole thing.”
Now, The Weeknd has confirmed that his new album will be out later this week on Friday, January 7.
“new album : dawn FM // january 7th,” he wrote alongside a short teaser clip.
Dawn FM, the follow up to Tesfaye’s 2020 album After Hours, has been described as “deep and elegant” by actor Jim Carrey.
I listened to Dawn FM with my good friend Abel @theweeknd last night. It was deep and elegant and it danced me around the room. I’m thrilled to play a part in his symphony. ;^• https://t.co/FV2LoKLYVX
