The Weeknd is finally releasing new music.

Just a few weeks ago he teased on Twitter that “album mode full effect.” On Monday night he took to social media again to announce that his new single “Heartless” would be available on Tuesday, “The fall starts tomorrow night. Tomorrow night we start again.”

The post showed The Weeknd in 80s style clothing, with a red suit, a mustache, and thick-rimmed glasses. The song is still very much The Weeknd, but it’s slightly more upbeat with a more hip-hop vibe than his previous music.

The Weeknd’s last album Starboy was released in 2006 and since then he has made many guest appearances, an EP last year called My Dear Melancholy, and a single for Game of Thrones called “Power is Power.”
