The Weeknd Calls His Next Album His “Last Hurrah As The Weeknd”

Could The Weeknd’s next album be his last one as the name “The Weeknd?” According to Tesfaye himself, that is true. He tells Lynn Hirschberg of W Magazine that his next album, the completion of the trilogy that begun with After Hours and continued with Dawn FM, will be his last as The Weeknd. “The album I’m working on now is probably my last hurrah as The Weeknd. This is something that I have to do. As The Weeknd, I’ve said everything I can say. I’ll still make music, maybe as Abel, maybe as The Weeknd. But I still want to kill The Weeknd. And I will. Eventually” he said. “I’m definitely trying to shed that skin and be reborn.”
