With his latest album Dawn FM officially out, The Weeknd could be in the middle of a brand new album trilogy.

The XO Records head took to Twitter to cryptically tweet the possibility, sharing, “i wonder… did you know you’re experiencing a new trilogy?” He didn’t divulge specific details, however with the release of Dawn FM and the record’s apparent connection to After Hours, it seems like his next album will culminate the trilogy.

If the rumors are true, this will mark The Weeknd’s second trilogy following his 2012 compilation album that included House of Balloons, Thursday and Echoes of Silence. The Canadian crooner has been very open with how Dawn FM serves as a direct followup to After Hours, stating during his 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards speech, “Like I said before, the After Hours are done and the dawn is coming.”

Take a look at The Weeknd’s tweet below and stay tuned for more info on his upcoming releases.

Elsewhere in music, Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city is the highest-selling rap album on vinyl of 2021.
