The Weeknd has been having a very amazing fourth quarter, filled with both nostalgia and new beginnings. Recently, he released the “Poison” single, his collaboration with the late Aaliyah, and also joined Rosalia for “La Fama.” He also celebrated the fifth anniversary of his STARBOY album last month by revealing a new visual for “Die For You” from that project.
He now makes his return to commemorate another milestone, this time for the 10th anniversary of Echoes of Silence. He honored the project yesterday (Dec. 21) by sharing an official video for its title track, and the stunning visual is created by artist Hajime Sorayama, the visual tells the story of two robots in a dystopian future.
A few months ago, The Weeknd signaled the start of his possible forthcoming album roll out when he unleashed his “Take My Breath” single. In September, gave his fans another unexpected treat as he unveiled an alternate video for his “Can’t Feel My Face” mega-hit. That week marked 6th anniversary of the album Beauty Behind The Madness that the song originally appeared on.
His latest body of work After Hours was released during the first quarter of last year, and originally saw 14 tracks with a slew of matching visuals, all of which depicted The Weeknd as a character inspired by films like Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Joker, and Casino. The project also produced a few special editions, adding on remixes and collaborations with the likes of Lil Uzi Vert, Doja Cat, Chromatics, and Oneohtrix Point Never. After Hours became one of the most commercial successful albums of 2020, landing The Weeknd at the top of the Billboard 200, UK’s Official Albums, and several other charts around the world — the project is certified double platinum in the U.S. alone.
