Meanwhile, The Weeknd shared a new collaboration with legendary pop songwriter Max Martin on Tuesday (May 26).

‘I Can’t Feel My Face’, rumoured to be the lead single from the R&B singer’s forthcoming album, would be the follow-up to his ‘Earned It’ single from the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack.

Max Martin has written a string of successful singles from Britney Spears‘ early hits to Katy Perry‘s ‘Teenage Dream’ and much of Taylor Swift‘s ‘1989’, which he executive-produced.

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 – real name Abel Tesfaye – has since clarified on Twitter that “information about my album date is false”.

The Weeknd released his album ‘Kiss Land’ in 2013. He shared two previously unheard songs, ‘King Of The Fall’ and ‘Often’, in July 2014.
