The countdown is on for the Weeknd fans waiting to tune into Dawn FM. To support the release of his newest album, the singer has announced a livestream event called “103.5 Dawn FM,” which is scheduled to air today, January 6th, on the Amazon Music app and its Twitch channel.
“The power of the 103.5 Dawn FM experience is that maximum fulfillment comes when all who hear it are tuned in at the same time,” the Weeknd said of his highly anticipated project in a release. The livestream will be broadcast from “somewhere in Los Angeles,” per promotional materials for the event.
Even though the Weeknd hasn’t revealed much about tonight’s broadcast, the artist gave fans a peek at his new album’s cover and 16-song track list earlier this week in a series of teasers on social media, which features the previously released single, “Take My Breath.” The follow-up to 2020’s After Hours reportedly features everyone from Tyler, the Creator to Jim Carrey.
“I listened to Dawn FM with my good friend Abel @theweeknd last night. It was deep and elegant and it danced me around the room. I’m thrilled to play a part in his symphony,” Carrey recently tweeted.
