Aug. 2 (UPI) — The Weeknd previewed new music on Twitter by releasing a teaser trailer.

“[Expletive] it…IT STARTS TONIGHT,” The Weeknd tweeted on Sunday before releasing the nearly two-minute clip.

The teaser trailer uses CGI graphics to depict a sun rising above the horizon.

The camera races towards the sun as the new, instrumental and synth-heavy music plays. The music features The Weeknd lightly crooning before his voice picks up.
