Canadian star The Weekend has ditched his iconic hair for a fresh new look as he unveils the cover for his new album, “Starboy.”
Fans never thought that The Weeknd would chop his locks off but when you have a new album coming out you do whatever you need to do to bring more attention to it.
Shot by photographer, Nabil, the cover art for Starboy features The Weeknd in dark blue and black tones with a crucifix necklace, contrasted by a bright red background and mustard “Starboy” title.
The Weeknd have been known for his hairstyle since his breakaway, but on Wednesday (Sept. 21) the “Often” singer posted an album promo pic of his trimmed hair on Instagram sending his fans into a frenzy.
“I come alive in the fall time,” The Weeknd wrote on Instagram.
The Weeknd, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, is of Ethiopian descent and only a few weeks ago was still rocking his freeform dreadlocks, a technique common among Rastafarians in Jamaica where you let your hair grow however it wants to.
His last project Beauty Behind The Madness was a huge success. Now the Canadian singer is looking to top the success of his sophomore album “Starboy.”
The Weeknd is currently working on his new album “Starboy,” which is due for release this fall.
There aren’t much details available on the project as it related to tracklisting and release date.
