A version of ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ was leaked earlier this year. The song is a new collaboration with legendary pop songwriter Max Martin, who has previously worked with the likes of Britney Spears, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift. You can listen to ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ at the top of the page, via Billboard.

It was previously reported that The Weeknd was preparing to release a new single, following ‘Earned It’, which reached Number Three in the US.

Republic Records executive Charlie Walk has hinted that a new song will surface in June. Walk recently tweeted, “I just worked out to the craziest @theweeknd song ever. Can’t wait for you to hear it in June!”

Reports followed that The Weeknd would release an entire new album on August 28, however the singer has since clarified on Twitter that “information about my album date is false”.

Apple announced in their Apple Music launch that the service will provide streaming, a 24/7 worldwide radio station called Beats 1 anchored by Zane Lowe, amongst others, and Connect, where artists can interact directly with fans.
