The Weeknd Announces Release Date of New Single ‘Take My Breath’ Via Tokyo Olympics Ad

Published: Monday 2nd Aug 2021 by Rashad

Despite still enjoying ongoing success via singles found aboard his blockbuster fourth studio album, ‘After Hours’ (2020), The Weeknd is already starting the clock on its follow-up.

Heavily teased over the last few weeks, the singer-songwriter (born Abel Tesfaye) sent his fans into a frenzy when he cleared his Instagram last week to indicate his next musical chapter was imminent – a notion he confirmed early Monday (August 2) when he declared the new era ‘starts tonight.’

Now, his followers can mark their calendars for the specific arrival date of his new single ‘Take My Breath.’

Late Monday night (August 2), Abel took to social media to post a commercial for the Tokyo Olympics starring the likes of Olympians Sydney McLaughlin, Dalilah Muhammad, Athing Mu and Gabrielle Thomas (which features ‘Breath’ as its soundtrack).

The song is slated for an August 6 release date.

As of time reported, it’s not been confirmed if the tune will serve as the official lead single of the GRAMMY winner’s highly anticipated, yet-titled fifth studio album.

    From what I could hear, the song feel more like a radio song than a high energy club record but the chorus is really catchy.

    MJ to Blade aesthetix, 80’s synth to 70’s Bee Gees-esque disco sound.
