After hinting at potential new music over the past year or so, The Weeknd has finally dropped a brand new teaser titled ‘The Dawn is Coming’.
If you cast your mind back to Abel’s 2021 Billboard Music Awards performance back in May, you might even recall the singer alluding to ‘The Dawn’ during his acceptance speech.
Fans sensed that things were being shaken up, music-wise, suggesting The Weeknd was headed into a new era after he archived Instagram posts and deleted his profile picture.
Watch the teaser video below:
It’s not clear, at the time of publishing, when a single from the new album will drop. With that being said, back in mid-July, the singer tweeted: “we gettin’ there” along with a CD emoji!

The Blinding Lights singer sure got the attention of fans as he took to social media to tease a new era of music.
One fan replied with: “my ears weren’t ready for this sir.”
Another tweeted: “i can’t contain myself. this snippet is so good.”

The Weeknd’s ‘After Hours’ success
Before there was ‘The Dawn’, The Weeknd’s ‘After Hours’ dominated music charts.
Released in March last year, Abel went on to release three more songs as part of the deluxe version: ‘Missed You’, ‘Nothing Compares’ and ‘Final Lullaby’.
The singer then went even further, by releasing a variation of remixes in collaboration with other artists. These included ‘In Your Eyes’ with Kenny G and ‘Save Your Tears’ with Ariana Grande.
