The Weeknd has announced ‘The Dawn FM Experience,’ a new immersive music special based on his most recent album of the same name. The special will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on Saturday, February 26. A synopsis reads that ‘The Dawn FM Experience‘ will expand the Dawn FM album “into a mesmerizing visual, creating a theatrical performance event that will envelop audiences in its unnerving and moody world.”
The Weeknd — Abel Tesfaye — said in a press release: “I’m ecstatic to partner with Amazon to premiere the most elaborate live TV special I’ve ever done. Welcome to the next phase of Dawn FM — a purgatory otherworld where live performance, theater, and performance art collide for a night out at the club.”
The Dawn FM Experience will only be available to Prime subscribers. Other content will be available around the special program, including an eight-track live EP that will be available to stream exclusively on Amazon Music. Exclusive merch will also be launched to celebrate the special, including limited-edition items and will only be available to customers in the US via amazon.com/theweeknd from 3pm ET on Friday, 2/25.
Dawn FM was released in January 2022, and features guest appearances by the likes of Lil Wayne, Quincy Jones, Oneohtrix Point Never, Tyler, The Creator, and actor Jim Carrey. You can buy or stream Dawn FM – here.
