The Weeknd’s new album is almost finished.
The superstar is just “a couple” of characters away from wrapping work on the follow-up to 2020’s chart-topping After Hours.
Speaking on his Apple Music show Memento Mori, The Weeknd said: “Only thing missing is a couple of characters that are key to the narrative.”
The Weeknd – whose name is Abel Tesfaye – teased that it will feature tracks about “some people that are near and dear to me, some people that inspired my life as a child, and some that inspire me now.”
The Canadian singer also apologized for his absence from his weekly show.
“I felt like I let a lot of you down by not continuing the weekly episodes I promised, but a lot has been going down, a lot of moving pieces,” he said.
However, he’s just moved into a $70 million mansion in Los Angeles and, as well as working on music and videos, he’s also been kept busy by his upcoming HBO series, “The Idol,” which he has co-written, executive-produced, and is set to star in alongside Lily-Rose Depp.
He continued: “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.”
The Weeknd’s upcoming album will feature his recent hit Take My Breath and has been hailed as a party record.
