“A new sound universe from the spirit of The Weeknd “ flashes on the screen at the start of a trailer that looks like a Scorsese movie, as The Weeknd is escorted by faceless characters. The camera shifts to a church-like shrine where we then see an older Weeknd and a current-looking Weeknd locking themselves into the eyes with some sort of siren as a voice calls out “You are now listening to 103.5 Dawn FM. You have been in the dark for too long. It is time to walk in the light and accept your destiny with open arms ” then quickly skips to an excerpt from a song that will be released soon.
As if the trailer weren’t enough to keep us on the edge of our seats, the artists that will be featured on ‘Dawn FM’ include Tyler, Creator, Jim Carrey, Quincy Jones, Lil Wayne, and producer Oneohtrix Point Never.
