Excitement is building among fans as The Weeknd, or Abel Tesfaye, has revealed that he is currently putting the finishing touches on his highly anticipated new album. The singer, who recently announced his decision to retire the moniker and release music under his birth name, has been teasing a trilogy of albums, which has already featured the critically acclaimed LPs ‘After Hours‘ and ‘Dawn FM‘.
In a recent interview with Variety, The Weeknd shared an update on the project and addressed fan theories regarding the album’s title. He clarified, “I’m finishing the third part of this saga, of this trilogy. The name of it will come out soon, but it’s not called what some fans think it’s called… what they think it’s called is actually a song on the album, but that’s not what the actual album is called. So I’m just gonna say that.”
In addition to his musical endeavors, The Weeknd is also making waves in the world of television. He stars in the new HBO show, ‘The Idol‘, which he has also contributed music to. Created by Sam Levinson, the mastermind behind ‘Euphoria‘, the series follows the story of a pop star, portrayed by Lily-Rose Depp, who becomes embroiled in a controversial relationship with a self-help guru and cult leader, played by Tesfaye himself.
Fans were treated to a taste of The Weeknd’s involvement in ‘The Idol’ through the release of two new songs from the show’s soundtrack earlier this month. Lily-Rose Depp also lent her vocals to these tracks, titled ‘World Class Sinner/I’m A Freak’ and ‘The Lure’. Moreover, The Weeknd recently collaborated with BLACKPINK’s Jennie on a track called ‘One For The Girls’.
