The new collaboration was first teased by The Weeknd back in September, when he posted two snippets of audio and tagged the recently reunited EDM supergroup.
Earlier today, both The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia shared a video clip to social media to hype up the collaboration, which both parties have stated will be arriving this week.
Earlier this month, The Weeknd confirmed that his new album is nearly “complete” and is only missing one key component that will make it totally finished.
“Only thing missing is a couple characters that are key to the narrative,” he said during the show. “Some people that are near and dear to me, some people that inspired my life as a child, and some that inspire me now. More to come in the following months.”
The star also teased that there would be “some exciting features” arriving in the coming months, ahead of the full album release.
The Weeknd also explained that he had not been able to host the radio show recently because “a lot has been going down,” including working on things for his new era.
“I’ve been settling in a new home, been shooting videos, been working on pre-productions for another world, working on music for the pre-productions for the other world, taking time to myself so I don’t completely lose my mind,” he said.
In August, the singer released his first piece of new music since After Hours in the single “Take My Breath,” which was co-written and co-produced by Max Martin. That track was released after the star shared a teaser video titled “The Dawn Is Coming.”
