The Weeknd is not letting this pandemic stop him from dropping music. Abel has returned with his highly anticipated project After Hours. His fans have been clamoring for a new project since his last Ep My Dear Melancholy was released last year. But with no information on a release date, Abel left many fans in limbo for a year.
Leading up to the release The Weeknd drop two singles Blinding Lights and Heartless. These records had a club and pop vibe to them which lead to some displeasure from fans because everybody misses the “Dark Weekend,” House of Ballons Weekend, but after listening to After Hours its very clear that Abel is long gone. There are tracks on the album that give some hope to that dream-like Snowchild, Escape From La and Faith. After Hours is cementing his transition to a new pop-emo sound and it is going to have it’s moment.
This album shows that Abel is in a different place in his life and we are getting a lot of emotionally relatable records. You can stream After Hours on all music platforms. Let us know what you think below.
