The Weeknd cleared his Instagram earlier this week, and it's now clear why. He has just announced his third studio album STARBOY and shared the cover art.

Abel's airy contribution to Cashmere Cat's recent single "Wild Love" suggest that STARBOY may be more left-field than Beauty Behind The Madness, which was a massive success. The album sold 415,000 units in its first week and eventually got all 14 songs onto the charts at the same time.

Expect to hear new music from The Weeknd in the coming weeks. Check out the cover art below. Thoughts on the new haircut?
