The Weeknd is on a roll. Just days after releasing his new album, Dawn FM, the Grammy-winning artist has issued a deluxe edition titled Dawn FM (Alternate World).
The updated set features three additional tracks, including “Take My Breath (Remix)” featuring Agents of Time and the previously shared “Moth To A Flame” with Swedish House Mafia.
The house music supergroup also worked on the “Sacrifice (Remix),” which is accompanied by an official music video. The visual celebrates ballroom culture and features several dancers showcasing their voguing skills. Although we don’t get to see The Weeknd dip or duckwalk, he does pay homage to Michael Jackson, yet again, with his own interpretation of MJ’s signature footwork.
“Take My Breath (Remix)” also arrives with a visual, which can be watched below.
The standard edition of Dawn FM was released on Jan. 7. It includes appearances from Quincy Jones, Lil Wayne, Tyler, the Creator, and Jim Carrey.
In an interview with Billboard, he shared what Dawn FM represents to him. “Picture the album being like the listener is dead. And they’re stuck in this purgatory state, which I always imagined would be like being stuck in traffic waiting to reach the light at the end of the tunnel,” he said.
“And while you’re stuck in traffic, they got a radio station playing in the car, with a radio host guiding you to the light and helping you transition to the other side. So it could feel celebratory, could feel bleak, however you want to make it feel, but that’s what The Dawn is for me.”
He’s expected to support Dawn FM with his After Hours Til Dawn Stadium Tour. Dates have not been announced yet.
