The Weekend has teased the possibility of a new album dropping.
The 29-year-old singer – whose real name is Abel Tesfaye – hinted he could be going back to his roots as he shared a selfie rocking his ‘House of Balloons’ era hair on social media while hinting he’s working on his first record since 2016’s ‘Starboy’.
Taking to Twitter, he simply wrote alongside the snap: “album mode full effect ”
After the announcement, fans took to social media to comment on the new album, with some insinuating the new album could be heavily influenced by his relationship woes with Bella Hadid.
The announcement comes amid speculation about Abel’s relationship with on/off girlfriend Bella Hadid, 22, following reports they had called time on their romance more than a year after reconciling in May 2018 following an on and off relationship which began in 2015 and ended on November 2016.
