The Weeknd announces March 20 release date for After Hours album & drops “After Hours” single
The Weeknd has announced that his new album, After Hours, will be out March 20 via XO Records / Republic Records.
With the announcement comes the title track, “After Hours”, following his recent Platinum hits “Heartless” and “Blinding Lights.”
“Heartless” previously hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and “Blinding Lights” became his first ever UK #1 song while also hitting #1 in multiple countries. “Blinding Lights” also soundtracked the Mercedes-Benz EQC campaign which The Weeknd starred in and served as creative director for.
Both songs received highly-acclaimed performances on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel Live! and on March 7 The Weeknd will perform on Saturday Night Live, marking his third appearance on the show.
The single was produced by The Weeknd, Mario Winans, DaHeala, and Illangelo.
