Self-quarantine just got easier thanks to The Weeknd's After Hours.

The Canadian artist dropped his long-awaited highly-anticipated fourth studio album on Friday (March 20) after months of teasing.

After Hours comes with no features and includes The Weeknd's singles "Heartless" and "Blinding Lights." The 14-track project is both dark and moody, yet a journey through varying moods— perfect for those long quarantine days ahead.

Back in February, Abel opened up about the album, telling CR Fashion Book that he was "confident" in the story he's crafted for his fans. "I feel confident with where I’m taking this [new] record,” he shared. “There’s also a very committed vision and character being portrayed and I get to explore a different side of me that my fans have never seen.”

As fans know, ahead of After Hours release, the 30-year-old artist dropped a five-minute visual of the same name. The short features a once again blooded Abel —the visual is connected to the two previous music videos he released for his singles "Heartless" and "Blinding Lights" — stumbling around a city, seemingly in a daze, wearing a red suit.

After Hours follows The Weeknd's 2018 EP My Dear Melancholy, and his 2016 album Starboy.
