The Weeknd announced on Friday (Sept. 25) that he’s returned his 2014 track “King of the Fall” to streaming services after the song’s spotty availability over the past few years.
The standalone single — which was accompanied by a full production video — was used as the title track to an autumn 2014 tour, but never ended up on 2015’s Beauty Behind the Madness album, which featured the singles “The Hills” and “Can’t Feel My Face.”
“Finally decided to put king of the fall on all platforms,” the singer announced on Twitter after he surprised fans by sending the mid-tempo burner to streaming services.
The Weeknd has been on an epic tear this year with his smash “Blinding Lights,” which broke the Billboard Hot 100 record by staying in the top five on the chart for 28 weeks, as well as setting a new high point on the all-format Radio Songs airplay chart, with 19 weeks at No. 1.
