The Weeknd has officially announced the release date of his forthcoming album After Hours, dropping March 20 via XO Records/Republic Records. Arriving alongside the news is the album’s title track, marked as the third single off the record following “Heartless” and “Blinding Lights,” with the latter used as the soundtrack for the Mercedes-Benz EQC campaign that the artist starred in and worked as creative director.
Earlier this January, the Toronto singer-songwriter appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! for a stunning performance of “Blinding Lights,” where he brought along all of the visual components from its accompanying music video. The Weeknd is also scheduled to be the musical guest for Saturday Night Live on March 7, where he will hopefully give the live debut of the new cut.
