The album features 18 songs from throughout his catalogue, including early fan favourites 'The Morning' alongside more recent hits like 'Blinding Lights' and 'Starboy'.
The Weeknd has unveiled a new greatest hits collection, titled The Highlights, ahead of his upcoming Super Bowl halftime performance.
The singer will take to the stage on February 7th for this year's halftime show at Raymond James Stadium in Florida.
While the Canadian artist (real name Abel Tesfaye) hasn’t officially announced the record, The Highlights is available for pre-order on his official merchandise store.
It's unclear yet whether the collection will be put on to streaming platforms, but the album is set for release on February 5th. Despite the Super Bowl, it is relatively unusual for a contemporary star to release a greatest hits collection. In the streaming era, a playlist easily serves the same function.
The Highlights features 12 of his 24 UK Top 40 hits, including 'Starboy'and Number 1 single 'Blinding Lights' - the UK's biggest song of 2020. His eight other UK Top 10 singles are included, while fan favourites including 2011's 'The Morning' and 2015's 'Often' also feature.
