Reportedly titled ‘Blinding Lights’, a snippet of the new song features in a Mercedes Benz commercial that aired today (November 24) on German TV channels. It mentions that the full clip will be available on November 29.
According to the ASCAP repository, the track is written and produced by The Weeknd, Belly and the singer’s longtime producer DaHeala.
The new song comes after The Weekend teased in August that his ‘Chapter VI’ album was on the way. Posting an image of himself on Twitter, he said: “album mode full effect”, much to the delight of his followers.
Hinting at big things to come in a tweet last year, he said of the upcoming project: “some chapters are smaller than others. not this next one though…”
Speaking to the crowd during a show in his home city of Toronto, he teased: “I wanna let you guys know, being in Toronto these past two days… I haven’t been this inspired in years, I got to tell you.”

Meanwhile, it was reported earlier this year that The Weeknd was being sued by a trio of British songwriters who claim that he ripped them off on his track ‘A Lonely Night’.
William Smith, Brian Clover and Scott McCulloch claim that the US star copied their track ‘I Need To Love’ – which they previously attempted to sell across the globe in 2004 and 2005.
