The Weeknd has revealed that he has returned to soundtrack work in a cryptic social media post. The musician has seemingly contributed some new music to the new Avatar sequel, Avatar: The Way of Water.
James Cameron’s long-awaited Avatar sequel is due to hit screens later this month. With the film set to arrive on December 16th, The Weeknd has revealed his involvement with the soundtrack with a 12-second teaser clip.
The synopsis for the movie reads: “Jake Sully lives with his newfound family formed on the planet of Pandora. Once a familiar threat returns to finish what was previously started, Jake must work with Neytiri and the army of the Na’vi race to protect their planet.”
The musician has been involved in several soundtracks in the past including the animated Sing series, Black Panther, Empire and more. The extent of his involvement with Avatar remains to be seen, however, on the basis of the social media post, it looks like he has been integral.
With a whopping budget of $350 million, The Weeknd was an affordable artist. However, with the previous outing topping the highest-grossing record, producers will be hoping that the investment is worth it.
