“A new world of sound from the spirit of The Weeknd,” Dawn FM is only a few days away. In a surprise trailer for the long-awaited project, the Canadian megastar revealed a 60-second glimpse into the world of Dawn FM, alongside an official release date of January 7. Towards the end of the trailer, a narrator explains,
“You are now listening to 103.5 Dawn FM. You have been in the dark for too long. It’s time to walk in the light and accept your destiny with open arms.
The trailer features both a young Weeknd and an aged version of himself, both navigating a dystopian sci-fi-inspired landscape. Additionally, the enigmatic teaser confirms album characteristics of Jim Carrey, Quincy Jones, Tyler, The Creator, Lil Wayne and the experimental producer (and After hours collaborator) Oneohtrix Point Never.
After the 2020s After hours, the first taste of Dawn FM arrived last year in August with the release of “Take My Breath”. Since then, The Weeknd has made vocal appearances in a trio of collaborations with FKA Twigs, Swedish House Mafia and the late Aaliyah. On January 7, the first Friday of 2022, Sir Abel Tesfayeh will return to center stage with what will likely become one of the most requested records of the year.
