The Weeknd Releases Music Video for "Sacrifice"

From his latest album, ‘Dawn FM.’

UPDATE (January 8, 2022): The Weeknd has debuted his latest visualizer for his track “Sacrifice” from his fifth studio album, Dawn FM.

Featuring a sample from Alicia Myers’ 1981 “I Want to Thank You” track, “Sacrifice” was co-produced by Swedish House Mafia and Max Martin. The Cliqua-directed music video kicks off with a close-up, centered shot of the artist listening to an announcement. The scene then showcases him teleporting to another dark space filled with hooded dancers who tie him to a giant wheel. The visual transitions between an array of scenes as The Weeknd performs his upbeat track.

UPDATE (January 7, 2022): The Weeknd​’s hotly anticipated fifth studio album has finally arrived. Dubbed Dawn FM, the 16-track record features guest appearances from Tyler, The Creator on “Here We Go… Again,” Lil Wayne on “I Heard You’re Married,” and Quincy Jones, Oneohtrix Point Never and Jim Carrey on the “Phantom Regret” outro. “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 artist shared in a statement.

In a slew of mysterious social media announcements, a one-minute teaser video names rapper Tyler, The Creator, actor Jim Carrey and industry legend Quincy Jones as a few of the upcoming album’s featured artists. 

In a more intimate post, the 31-year-old musician lets fans know that he is doing away with the standard album rollout, opting to drop the entire collection of songs at once online. Posting a screenshot of a conversation with La Mar Taylor, co-founder of XO Records, The Weeknd writes, “Everything feels chaotic again. Music can heal, and that feels more important than another album rollout. Let’s just drop the whole thing and enjoy it with the people … XO.”

Dawn FM is scheduled for release on Friday, January 7. Take a look at the cover art for The Weeknd’s fifth studio album below.
