UPDATED 11/25, 12:20 a.m. ET: It looks like new music is actually coming from Abel Tesfaye and very soon. The Weeknd took to IG to post a blurry pic and write, "the fall starts tomorrow night."
In the meantime, watch a Mercedes-Benz commercial starring the Weeknd up top. The clip features a portion of the singer's upcoming "Blinding Lights" track. At the end of the ad, a message says that a "full film" will be out on Friday, November 29.

The Weeknd stirred fan speculation when he reactivated his Instagram account, and now there's even more teases pointing to new music. Not only has Abel reappeared on social media with a cryptic "loading..." bio, but he's also been spotted filming what could be a new music video in Las Vegas.
As TMZ reports, the Weeknd shut down a street in Las Vegas during the early hours of the morning. In a clip, the singer can be seen running down Fremont street alongside a sizeable crew. The sources that provided the clip indicated that it was shot a few weeks back, although it's not clear on the exact time frame.
With the teases mounting up, it would make sense that he's getting ready to debut a cinematic clip for the long-awaited follow-up to My Dear Melancholy.
Meanwhile, as pointed out by fans on Reddit, a new song entitled "Blinding Lights" has appeared in Mercedes commercial. The clip prominently features the currently unreleased track and even has a cameo from Abel himself. The preview is mostly instrumental, but it does appear to have a more disco-oriented direction than My Dear Melancholy.
Regardless, fans assumedly won't have to wait much longer to hear more.
Check out the commercial above via a fan's Instagram account.
