The Weeknd will release My Dear Melancholy tonight
What appears to be a new album is coming soon.
The Weeknd will release a new album, My Dear Melancholy, tonight, according to an Instagram he shared Thursday afternoon, featuring the album's cover with the caption "tonight." Yesterday, he hinted at the album's release in an Instagram showing a screenshot of his text to an unnamed friend, in which he'd written "should we drop Friday? I'm indifferent to be honest." Apparently, the answer was yes.
Last week, The Weeknd, who will headline Coachella in April, was seen filming what appeared to be a new music video in a small town in California. Earlier this month, Travis Scott called the new album "scray."
The FADER has reached out to a representative for The Weeknd for more information on tonight's release.
