The Weeknd Teases New Track 'Blinding Lights'
Is The Weeknd about to drop a new track?
The Canadian singer is seen in a Mercedes-Benz commercial that aired Sunday on German television and features part of a song titled “Blinding Lights.”
The commercial ends with a promise that the full-length version will be available on the automaker’s YouTube channel on Nov. 29.
According to the ASCAP database, “Blinding Lights” was written by The Weeknd with his fellow Canadians and frequent collaborators Jason Quenneville (aka DaHeala) and Ahmad Balshe (aka Belly).
The Weeknd has been teasing something on his socials. He wiped his Instagram account clean and wrote “loading…” in the bio and on Twitter, the singer asked “when is fall actually over? Just curious…” on Nov. 18. (The season officially ends on Dec. 22.)
The Weeknd’s most recent studio album, Starboy, was released in November 2016 but he kept fans satisfied by dropping the EP My Dear Melancholy last year. This year, he appeared on the Gesaffelstein track “Lost in the Fire” and with SZA and Travis Scott on “Power Is Power.”
