The Weeknd is gearing up to release a hits album.

Though no official announcements have yet been made by the Canadian vocalist, 'The Highlights' is currently available to pre-order on his website and other online stores, with a release date set for February 5, two days ahead of his performance at this year's Super Bowl halftime show on February 7.

It promptly follows up his 2020 album 'After Hours', which he'll support with a rescheduled North America trek this summer, with shows in Europe and UK moved to the autumn.

The Highlights tracklist:
1. Save Your Tears
2. Blinding Lights
3. In Your Eyes
4. Canít Feel My Face
5. I Feel It Coming Feat. Daft Punk
6. Starboy Feat. Daft Punk
7. Pray For Me Feat. Kendrick Lamar
8. Heartless
9. Often
10. The Hills
11. Call Out My Name
12. Die For You
13. Earned It
14. Love Me Harder (Ariana Grande and The Weeknd)
15. Acquainted
16. Wicked Games
17. The Morning
18. After Hours

This is a major smart move with the Superbowl coming a few days later and I love seeing Greatest Hits being released in the streaming era because I was worried they were over and done with~ BUT the (almost) complete lack of The Trilogy representation here is really not the one. I hope there's a deluxe edition that is more reflective of the artist he was before he broke through into the maintstream because without that it feels incomplete sad.gif

Save Your Tears should probably get a streaming boost from this too!

At the moment it's CD only. There is no confirmation of a digital release yet.

I was excited for this, then realised it wasn’t anywhere near complete. I can sort of understand the trilogy era being kept separated but not even a spot for Belong to the World? sad.gif

Not happy about the lack of False Alarm and Rockin either.

Oh god, this is gonna be in the top 10 for decades. Does this mean streams for Blinding Lights, The Hills, Can't Feel My face etc. will count for this album now?

Didn't even notice that missing :/ Justice for the sorely underrated Kiss Land era sob.gif

The more I look at the tracklist, the less I like it. Give us a Side 2/deluxe please!

It's not supposed to be complete, that's why it's called Highlights.

Belong To The World was not a hit, why would that be included? This is to appeal to the masses to tie in with his Superbowl appearance

Yeah this is almost 100% geared towards the GP who only really know him for his big hits, thereís a few lesser known singles hidden among the hits so people can get acquainted with his less commercial stuff.

it's just a Super Bowl cash-in, I personally think it's a bad move cos it's gonna damage the sales of his studio albums (thats why nobody releases GH anymore)

The streams of each song count towards both the greatest hits and their respective studio album.

^yes I know that, thats not what I meant
I meant that it damages physical sales of his studio albums
like for example if you hear Adele for the first time (I know!) she doesn't have a GH so you'd probably end up buying
all her studio albums 19, 21 and 25
but if she had a GH, people would buy the GH and thats it.

I see what you mean but do many people actually buy The Weeknd's albums?

It feels weird to see an artist like The Weeknd releasing a greatest hits album in the streaming era. I guess it makes sense as a Super Bowl cash in for him.
