The Weeknd is preparing his return in 2024 with an album… and a film!

Music news

Fans’ wait is (finally) coming to an end. The Weeknd should return to the forefront very soon with a new opus. And to top it all off, a film will accompany this release in stores.

A year that promises to be busy. The Weeknd relayed last night on his Instagram account the publication of a fan account confirming the upcoming release of a new album. The latter will close the trilogy after “After Hours” and “Dawn FM”. We remember that in 2011, the singer did the same thing for “House of Balloons”, “Thursday” and “Echoes of Silence”. The Weeknd seems to like his opuses to complement each other.

On social networks, fans of the Canadian artist do not hide their enthusiasm: “ Finally ! I couldn’t see myself waiting another year without a new album from The Weeknd”, “I’m super excited, but I’m afraid it’ll be the last of his career”, “I’m literally crying, I I need this album now », We can read on X (formerly Twitter). Unfortunately, you will have to be patient. No release date has been revealed.

A film with Jenna Ortega and Barry Keoghan

That’s not all. We should soon find The Weeknd on screen alongside Jenna Ortega (“Wednesday”, “Scream”) and Barry Keoghan (“Saltburn”, “The Eternals”) in a film that he produced and co-wrote. The plot and title of this film shot in Los Angeles are still unknown. However, we know that he will sign the soundtrack for the feature film.
