The Weeknd is about to put out some new music — and while some were expecting a single, it looks more like an entire album is about to drop!


New cover art has popped up all over the musician’s socials, titled My Dear Melancholy. That’s not all though, the album cover is appearing on billboards and making headlines, which has us believing this is album material we’re talking.

It all started with a single post, which showed The Weeknd himself texting, “should we drop Friday? I’m indifferent to be honest.” Well, 772,118 likes and tons of comments later, it’s obvious his fanbase wants new music ASAP.

I mean, drop it now why don’t you — if you’re that indifferent?

This will mark the legend’s direct follow up to Starboy, his third studio album which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. The album produced several singles including “Starboy,” “I Feel It Coming,” “Party Monster,” “Reminder,” “Rockin'” and “Die for You.”

As for the new album, so far Genius.com lists six total tracks. One of which piques particular interest for the EDM community: “Wasted Times” is co-produced by none other than Skrillex.

The Weeknd, you have our attention. We’ll be listening come midnight.
