Both of them have now teased a new collab in cryptic fashion, taking to social media to share short previews. The clips feature a glimpse into what appears to be a music video as well as the song's lyrics, as The Weeknd croons, "Like a moth to a flame." The teasers end in a message that reads, “To be continued," fueling speculation that an official release is on the horizon.
The pop and R&B superstar poured gasoline on the rumors in a recent episode of his Memento Mori radio show on Apple Music, wherein he explored "new Dawn era," a reference to his next album. He then went on to play Swedish House Mafia's comeback single "It Gets Better" along with tracks by Britney Spears, Kanye West, Kid Cudi, and more. The Weeknd and Swedish House Mafia also share the same manager, Sal Slaiby.
Since returning from a nine-year hiatus earlier in 2021, Swedish House Mafia are gearing up for the release of a new album called Paradise Again. The record is expected to arrive before the end of this year, but the group have not yet announced a release date.
