The Weeknd has returned with his brand new track ‘Take My Breath’, accompanied by a video.
Earlier this week, the Canadian started to tease his comeback when he teamed up with Team USA Women’s Track & Field team to share a snippet of ‘Take My Breath’. He allowed the track to feature in a short promo video starring athletes Sydney McLaughlin, Dalilah Muhammad, Athing Mu, and Gabby Thomas. Now, the whole track is here.
The disco-infused new single is electrifying and gets the new era of The Weeknd away to a vivacious start. It arrives with a new video that sees Tesfaye find himself getting into trouble and eventually receiving a punch to the face from a stranger.
Meanwhile, in a new profile with GQ, The Weeknd described the new album as “a project packed with party records… Quincy Jones meets Giorgio Moroder meets the best-night-of-your-fucking-life party records”.
He added, “It’s the album I’ve always wanted to make”. The Weeknd did also confirm to the publication that he was yet to finish the record.
“I want to do this forever,” he said elsewhere in the interview. “And even if I start getting into different mediums and different types of expressions, music will be right there. I’m not going to step away from it.”
