Dawn FM is the fifth studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter the Weeknd, released on January 7, 2022, through XO and Republic Records. It features narration by Jim Carrey, guest vocals from Tyler, the Creator and Lil Wayne, and spoken word appearances from Quincy Jones and Josh Safdie. As the album's executive producers, the Weeknd, Oneohtrix Point Never, and Max Martin recruited a variety of other producers such as Oscar Holter, Calvin Harris and Swedish House Mafia.

The Weeknd described the album's concept as a state of purgatory—a journey towards the "light at the end of a tunnel", serving as a follow-up to his fourth studio album After Hours (2020). Musically, Dawn FM is an upbeat record containing dance-pop and synth-pop songs that are heavily inspired by the 1980s new wave, funk and electronic dance music styles. The album received widespread acclaim from music critics, who complimented its psychedelic concept, production and melodies.

Two singles were released from the album, of which the lead single "Take My Breath" peaked at number six on the US Billboard Hot 100. The Weeknd promoted Dawn FM with an Amazon Music event on the album release day, in which he served as a disc jockey and played the album to an audience. The album reached number one in 10 countries, including Australia, Ireland, the Netherlands, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, and at number two on the US Billboard 200.

To further support both Dawn FM and After Hours, the Weeknd plans to embark on the After Hours til Dawn Stadium Tour, which is scheduled to visit North America, Europe, South America, Asia, Australia, Africa and the Middle East in the summer of 2022.

Background and release

On March 20, 2020, the Weeknd released his fourth studio album After Hours during the beginning of COVID-19 restrictions.[1] It was a commercial success and received mostly positive reviews from music critics, some of whom named it his best work yet.[2][3] Shortly after, the Weeknd began working on his next studio album; in an interview with Rolling Stone in September 2020, he stated that he "might have another album ready to go by the time this quarantine is over."[4] The Weeknd later explained that he was originally working on an album inspired by the depressive state he was in during the COVID-19 pandemic, but scrapped the project because it was "emotionally detrimental" and began working on Dawn FM.[5]

The Weeknd began to tease a new album in May 2021 in an interview with Variety, when he stated "if the last record is the After Hours of the night, then The Dawn is coming".[6] He continued to tease the album with the tentative title, The Dawn, during his acceptance speeches at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards and the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards.[7] On August 2, the Weeknd released a teaser on his social media accounts titled "The Dawn is Coming", which contained a snippet of a then-unreleased song. Later that day, in a partnership with NBC Sports and the 2020 Summer Olympics, he announced the album's lead single "Take My Breath", which was released on August 6.[8] On October 4, 2021, during an episode of his Apple Music 1 radio show, Memento Mori, the Weeknd announced that the album was complete, and that he was waiting on a "couple characters that are key to the narrative." He then described the characters as "some people that are near and dear to me, some people that inspired my life as a child and some that inspire me now."[9][10]

On January 1, 2022, the Weeknd teased a possible surprise release of the album in an Instagram post, which featured a screenshot of a text conversation he had with his best friend and creative director La Mar Taylor. After exchanging New Year's greetings, the Weeknd messaged that "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."[11] The next day, the Weeknd hinted at the album's arrival, tweeting "wake up at dawn tomorrow".[12] On January 3, he announced the album's official title through a trailer video and announced that it would be released on January 7, 2022.[13] He subsequently revealed the track listing through a second trailer on January 5.[14] On January 11, the Weeknd announced an expanded edition of the album subtitled Alternate World including two remixes and previously released single "Moth to a Flame" with Swedish House Mafia.[15] During its first week, Dawn FM was only available via digital music and streaming platforms; physical copies were shipped at later dates.[16] Addressing the initial lack of physical copies, the Weeknd took to Twitter and wrote, "this doesn't matter to me. [W]hat matters is getting to experience the album together with the fans during these times."[17]


Who knows what the next one is going to sound like? When it comes to my albums, there is a cohesive sound going on, but I can't really stick to one style. So you’ll hear EDM, hip-hop and three other types of sounds in one song – and somehow, we make it work.

— The Weeknd to Billboard[18]

Primarily a pop record,[19] Dawn FM is rooted in dance-pop[19] and synth-pop genres.[20] Recalling 1980s electronic bands such as Depeche Mode and Duran Duran,[21][22][23] the album significantly incorporates city pop,[22] funk,[24] and disco,[25] alongside elements of R&B,[26] new wave,[26] electropop,[26] EDM,[18] hip hop,[26][18] blues,[27] boogie, electro,[19] dubstep, drum and bass,[28] and techno.[20] Influences of Michael Jackson's Off the Wall (1979) and Thriller (1982) are also present in Dawn FM.[27]

Concept and themes

Dawn FM incorporates a "psychedelic radio" aesthetic with existential themes,[29] similar to American experimental record producer Oneohtrix Point Never's album Magic Oneohtrix Point Never (2020), which the Weeknd appeared on and executive produced under his formal name.[30] The "103.5" station tag that the album strongly incorporates is a nod to the Toronto radio station Z103.5.[31] In an interview with Billboard on November 23, 2021, the Weeknd elaborated on these themes, saying:

Picture the album being like the listener is dead. And they're stuck in this purgatory state, which I always imagined would be like being stuck in traffic waiting to reach the light at the end of the tunnel. And while you're stuck in traffic, they got a radio station playing in the car, with a radio host guiding you to the light and helping you transition to the other side. So it could feel celebratory, could feel bleak, however, you want to make it feel, but that's what 'The Dawn' is for me.[18]


The standard album cover of Dawn FM is shot by Matilda Finn.[32] It features a dramatically aged version of the Weeknd as an elderly bearded man in a dark background setting with a small ray of light shining behind the back of his shoulder.[33] The collector's editions of the album, listed on the Weeknd's online store, features three alternate Dawn FM covers designed by American artist Robert Beatty, who also designed the album cover for OPN's Magic Oneohtrix Point Never.[note 2][34] The HMV and Target exclusive alternate covers were also designed by Beatty.[35][36]



On August 6, 2021, the album's lead single, "Take My Breath", was released digitally on music stores and streaming services.[8] The song peaked at number six on the US Billboard Hot 100 and reached the top ten in 20 other territories.[37] Its music video was premiered alongside its release and was directed by Cliqua.[38]

"Sacrifice" was released as the second official single in tandem with Dawn FM on January 7, 2022.[39] Its music video was released on the same day, and was directed by Cliqua. Its storyline follows the plot previously established by the "Take My Breath" music video.[40] The song was sent to contemporary hit radio in the United States on January 11, 2022.[41]

Other songs

"I Heard You're Married" featuring Lil Wayne was originally meant to be sent to American rhythmic contemporary radio as the album's third single on January 11, 2022, however its release as a single was cancelled.[42]

A music video for the album's second track "Gasoline" was released on January 11, 2022.[43] It follows the story arc established by the previous visuals released in support of the album and was directed by Matilda Finn.[32] The song was set to be sent to American contemporary hit radio as the album's third single on January 18, 2022, however its release was cancelled.[44]

103.5 Dawn FM livestream

On January 7, 2022, alongside the release of Dawn FM, the Weeknd hosted a live event with Amazon Music, in which he served as a disc jockey and played the entire album in front of a small crowd.[45] The event was live-streamed on Twitch and was directed by Micah Bickham. The Weeknd wore old makeup and prosthetics during the event, similar to the prosthetics he donned on the Dawn FM album cover.[46] Various different shots of the livestream were turned into lyric videos for the album.[47] The whole livestream was uploaded to YouTube on January 12, 2022.


Originally set to only support After Hours, the Weeknd announced on October 18, 2021, that his upcoming seventh concert tour would be renamed as the After Hours til Dawn Stadium Tour to incorporate elements from Dawn FM.[48]

Dawn FM was met with widespread acclaim from music critics.[57] At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from professional publications, the album received an average score of 88 based on 22 reviews, indicating "universal acclaim".[50] Aggregator AnyDecentMusic? gave it 8.4 out of 10, based on their assessment of the critical consensus.[49]

Describing Dawn FM as a new peak for the Weeknd, Will Dukes of Rolling Stone praised the album for its "interstellar ambitions" and "enchanting music".[55] Mikael Wood of the Los Angeles Times called it "the year's first great album", praising its production, melodies and vocals, while noting that Dawn FM is more positive and upbeat than his previous works.[58] Andy Kellman of AllMusic praised the album, stating, "In the main, this is a space for Tesfaye to fully indulge his frantic romantic side as his co-conspirators whip up fluorescent throwback Euro-pop with muscle and nuance".[51] Rhian Daly of NME said Dawn FM "feels like the first steps on a journey for the Weeknd to find peace with himself; perhaps next time we hear from him, he'll be fully embracing the light of day."[23] Dani Blum from Pitchfork enjoyed said the album conceptualizes "listening to a retro-pop radio station in purgatory", delivering the Weeknd's most "thoughtful, melodic, and revealing project" of his career.[54] David Smyth of Evening Standard wrote the Weeknd reaches his "pop prime" on the album.[52] Matt Mitchell of Paste opined that Dawn FM transcends "dynamic pop grandeur and flaunts accountability in the face of death".[20]

Reviewing the album for Variety, Jem Aswad stated Dawn FM is "possibly the Weeknd's best and most fully realized album to date."[59] Spin critic Bobby Olivier praised Max Martin for conferring a cohesive, "well-polished" production to the album, while still maintaining its "dexterity, punch and sex appeal."[60] Roisin O'Connor of The Independent wrote the album is "a self-knowing contradiction to the Weeknd's past celebrations of impermanence via one-night stands and sleazy affairs."[21] Writing for Clash, Alex Rigotti stated the album has "some pacing issues" and lacks "character and vivacity" of its predecessor, but nevertheless is a solid follow-up with "its dramatic instrumentation and refreshed view of the world."[61]

Commercial performance

In the United States, Dawn FM debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 with 148,000 album-equivalent units, calculated from 173.04 million on-demand streams and 14,000 album sales; it was blocked from the top spot by American rapper Gunna's DS4Ever, which debuted with an extra 2,300 units that week.
