The Weeknd dropped the video for “Nothing’s Lost (You Give Me Strength),” the theme song for the movie “Avatar: The Way of Water.”
The clip is directed by Quentin Deronzier and comes from the production company La Pac. The song was written by The Weeknd and produced by Swedish House Mafia with Simon Franglen.
Last month The Weeknd announced tentative 2023 dates for his “After Hours Till Dawn” tour, which roared across North America last year. The next leg of the tour kicks off on June 10 at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, UK and spans 21 cities before continuing with six dates in Latin America and concluding at the Estadio Bicentenario de la Florida on October 15 in Santiago, Chile. Additional 2023 dates to be announced.
For the tour, the Canadian singer will once again partner with the United Nations World Food Program to raise funds for the second leg of the tour for his XO Humanitarian Fund, which supports the organization’s response to the global hunger crisis. The sold-out North American leg of the stadium tour, which has grossed more than $130 million to date, has raised money for the fund through ticket sales, exclusive tour T-shirt sales and direct donations of $500,000 from the weekend. €1 from every ticket sold across Europe, £1 in the UK and the equivalent of $1 in countries across Latin America will go to this important cause.
“The Idol,” the HBO series that The Weeknd co-wrote, co-produced and stars in, will premiere next year. Variety previously reported that the series follows “a self-help guru and a modern-day leader who develops a complicated relationship with an up-and-coming pop idol.” The show has undergone significant changes behind the scenes in recent months, as a change in creative direction led to director Amy Simetz leaving the show.
