It’s time to walk into the light and accept your fate with open arms.” See The Weeknd’s upcoming album cover here:

During a previous radio appearance, the “Take My Breath Away” artist hinted at teaming up with “some people that inspired my life as a child…and some that inspire me now.” He has since released collaborations with Swedish House Mafia and Post Malone. The Weeknd is set to kick off a stadium tour in 2022, aiming to do something “bigger and special” for fans. “The tour dates are moving and will commence in the summer of 2022,” he stated when announcing the After Hours Til Dawn Stadium Tour in October. “New dates forthcoming.”
