New Song By The Weeknd Debuts In "Avatar: The Way Of Water" Trailer

The soundtrack for Avatar: The Way Of Water will feature a brand-new song by The Weeknd.

The movie’s final trailer included a clip of “Nothing Is Lost (You Give Me Strength),” which the superstar shared on Instagram on Wednesday (December 7). The Weeknd captioned his photo, calling it “THE MOTION PICTURE EVENT OF A GENERATION.”

The song will be released on December 15, and the movie debuts in theaters on December 16 the following day.

The Weeknd previously teased his involvement with the movie on December 5, and now we have a new clip. Producer of the film Jon Landau also tweeted a photo of himself with The Weeknd with the caption, “As the Na’vi say, ‘Zola’u nprrte’ soaiane Avatar’… Welcome to the Avatar family.

After receiving nine Oscar nominations and winning three of them for best art direction, best cinematography, and best visual effects, 2009’s Avatar became the highest-grossing film of all time ($2.92 billion globally) and will soon be followed by James Cameron’s eagerly anticipated sequel.

The Weeknd released Dawn FM, his fifth studio album, back in January. The album peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.

The Recording Industry Association of America just awarded diamond certification to the singer’s 2015 track “Can’t Feel My Face” (RIAA). After the success of “The Hills,” “Starboy,” and “Blinding Lights,” he now has four diamond singles to his credit.

The “Can’t Feel My Face” singer has also been collaborating with Sam Levinson of Euphoria on a brand-new HBO Max TV program called The Idol. The drama centers on The Weeknd as a club owner and cult leader in Los Angeles who develops a tangled romance with a budding pop singer (Lily-Rose Depp).

The show, which has been in development since last June, is made by A24, Bron Creative, Little Lamb, and HBO Entertainment. The Idol started filming in Los Angeles in November of last year, but in April, it was rumored that the show was changing its creative focus due to cast changes.
