The Weeknd looks to be the latest artist to go the route of the surprise release. Ahead of his headlining appearance at Coachella next month, the Toronto crooner will drop a new album called My Dear Melancholy, at midnight tonight. Update: You can now stream My Dear Melancholy, in full here.
A billboard advertising the album’s impending release spoiled the surprise a few hours early. For his part, The Weeknd has shared an Instagram post with the album’s artwork and the caption “tonight.”
My Dear Melancholy will mark The Weeknd’s fourth studio album to date and comes less than two years after his Grammy Award-winning LP, Starboy. A source close to the singer told Billboard that “this project is Abel taking it back to his roots.”
