The Weeknd Is ‘Mastering’ His Next Album

Posted by Unknown on 11:21 AM

Can you feel it coming? After shooting a music video in Taft, Calif., The Weeknd confirms that his next release is in the mastering stage.

Taking to Instagram, the XO crooner posted six silent videos in three separate posts. Each one shows The Weeknd in the studio, singing, smoking, reading off his phone, and bobbing his head to playback. The caption for each post is, “mastering.”

Abel Tesfaye unleashed his debut full-length album Kiss Land in 2013 and boosted his career with the chart-topping Beauty Behind the Madness in 2015. He dropped his last album, Starboy, in 2016. It’s unclear when his next release is due.

The album could arrive in the next few weeks. The XO crooner is scheduled to headline Coachella on Apr. 13 and 20. It’s plausible to expect a new album before then. Later this year, he’s also scheduled to headline Lollapalooza.

Hints about the new album have also been dropping. Earlier this month, Travis Scott confirmed that it was practically done. “Abel new album is [scary],” he tweeted. “It’s like when I first heard him for the first time. Fuckkkkkk !!!!!”

More recently, The Weeknd shot a music video for his next single, in Taft, Calif. Leaked footage shows him singing in the rain and surfing through the streets.

He’s also been delivering new material. On Friday (March 23), the Puma-endorsed star joined Trouble on “Come Thru” off his Edgewood project.
