The Weeknd has released his newest compilation album, The Highlights.

Clocking in at approximately one hour and 15 minutes, the 18-track release serves as a “career-spanning project” rather than a “Greatest Hits” album. The Highlights include recent cuts like “Blinding Lights,” “Save Your Tears” and “In Your Eyes,” certified classics such as “Can’t Feel My Face,” “Starboy,” “Earned It” and “The Hills,” plus collabs with other artists that didn’t drop via his albums, namely “Pray for Me” with Kendrick Lamar (from the Black Panther soundtrack) and “Love Me Harder” with Ariana Grande (from her 2014 album My Everything).

The Highlights arrive just before The Weeknd is set to perform his highly-anticipated Super Bowl LV halftime performance on February 7. The XO Records head also unveiled a massive tour slated for 2022, spanning across 104 dates in Canada, the U.S., U.K. and Europe.
