The Weeknd announces immersive TV special, The Dawn FM Experience

The Weeknd has shared details of a new immersive television experience centred around his latest album, 'Dawn FM'.

'The Weeknd x The Dawn FM Experience' is set to premiere via Prime Video this Saturday, 26th February, and will also take the form of "an eight-track live EP", which will be available for exclusive streaming on Amazon Music.

A press release said the immersive special will place 'Dawn FM' into a visual experience befitting the album's "unnerving and moody world". The Weeknd created the project, alongside La Mar C. Taylor and director Micah Bickham.

"I'm ecstatic to partner with Amazon to premiere the most elaborate live TV special I've ever done," The Weeknd said in the press release. "Welcome to the next phase of 'Dawn FM' – a purgatory otherworld where live performance, theatre and performance art collide for a night out at the club."

Watch a visual teaser for the project below.

The Weeknd released 'Dawn FM', which features production from Oneohtrix Point Never and Swedish House Mafia, last month.

He quickly followed it up with a remix of the track 'Sacrifice' by Swedish House Mafia, who also co-produced the original song.
