The Weeknd's fifth studio album is getting the Amazon Prime Video treatment, allowing fans to experience Dawn FM in a whole new light.

According to Billboard, Amazon released a statement saying the Micah Bickham-directed film, The Dawn FM Experience, promises to transform the music artist's latest album, "Into a mesmerizing visual, creating a theatrical performance event that will envelop audiences in its unnerving and moody world."

"I’m ecstatic to partner with Amazon to premiere the most elaborate live TV special I’ve ever done," The Weeknd said in the statement.

He continued, "Welcome to the next phase of Dawn FM – a purgatory otherworld where live performance, theater, and performance art collide for a night out at the club."

A teaser for the film experience, set to debut on Amazon Prime video on February 26, shows The Weeknd looking much older and increasingly weary as he wanders into what looks like an abandoned warehouse.

Here, he's hit with Blinding Lights as music from Dawn FM plays in the background, before the on-screen visual fades to black.

Dawn FM was released on January 7 to much acclaim, toting surprise appearances from Tyler, the Creator, Lil Wayne, and even voice-over work by the legendary Jim Carrey.

Music from the immersive Dawn FM Experience will also be available to steam as an eight-track live EP through Amazon Music following its debut.
