Over a year after the release of The Weeknd's Beauty Behind the Madness, fans have been waiting anxiously for news of his next project. After heavy buildup, it seems like our prayers have finally been answered, as the Canadian artist took to social media to reveal the cover art and title for his upcoming album.

Shot by Nabil, the cover art for Starboy features The Weeknd in dark blue and black tones with a crucifix necklace, contrasted by a bright red background and mustard "Starboy" text above. According to an interview with VMAN, “The production feels aggressive but still sexy. The Smiths, Bad Brains, Talking Heads, Prince, and DeBarge play roles. We wrote it all in Los Angeles. I think it’ll be the best-sounding album I’ve ever done. It’s hard to label the sound because, when I first came out, nobody would label it R&B. I just want to keep pushing the envelope without it feeling forced.”

The release date for Starboy has not yet been announced, but with the unveiling of the new cover art it's clear that hype has officially begun for The Weeknd's next album.

Let us know what you think about the album's cover art and title in the comments below.
