The Weeknd has teased fans with new music in a series of tweets on Tuesday, April 27 where he shared some of his thoughts about the new music “magic” he’s been working on. Back in March 2020, he unleashed his massive After Hours album on the world. The chart-topping smash-success of an album provided the Starboy artist with his biggest hit to date- “Blinding Lights,” and a coveted spot performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show.
While the project arrived right at the top of quarantine, being stuck at home throughout the ordeal seems to have inspired Weeknd to churn out more hits.
Beginning the tweets with a gif of Bugs Bunny, he began, “what is real?” He continued in four more tweets, “made so much magic in the small quarantined room. nothing’s ever random. now just piecing it all together… it’s so beautiful.”
While he has yet to announce exactly what this project could entail, we’ll keep our ears peeled for any updates. Back in September of 2020, he vaguely hinted at releasing another album once quarantine concludes, although that timeframe was unpredictable at the time.
“I might have another album ready to go by the time this quarantine is over,” he explained at the time. “I’m guilty of wanting to outdo my last album, but it’s never like, ‘I’ve got to do the same type of song.’ I’m so happy I’m not like that. My palette is so wide.”
There definitely seems to be new Weeknd music on the way, and we can barely wait.
