The Weeknd's forthcoming album (that's yet to be announced) will follow last year's After Hours.

Yesterday (2 August) The Weeknd stated in a new GQ interview that the new album is "the album I’ve always wanted to make". He also revealed he'd "love to work with Arca", adding, "I’d love to work with Kanye again. Especially on production. I got mad love for Tyler, the Creator, and what he’s doing right now."
