Earlier this week, Abél Makkonen Tesfaye, better known by his stage name The Weeknd, took to Twitter to tease his upcoming project, "Mania." All the information is yet to be revealed, so we're focusing on what we do know.

1. It's a visual piece

The Weeknd revealed in his tweet that "Mania" is a "visual piece" and the trailer seems to hint at something set in a seedy club with a dark mood.

2. It could be a continuation of "Starboy"

The Weeknd's hit track "Starboy," featuring Daft Punk, was released on Sept. 28, and some fans believe that this new piece could be a continuation of it. In the video for "Starboy" we see The Weeknd seeking revenge after initially being tied up in his home by a masked intruder, and the setting for "Mania" certainly looks eerily similar — the panther, the lighting and the driving scenes are some examples.

3. It's directed by Grant Singer

Grant Singer is no stranger to working with musicians on creating incredible music videos, and along with several collaborations with The Weeknd (on songs including "Starboy," "Tell Your Friends," and "I Can't Feel My Face"), he's also worked with Phantogram, Clams Casino and Future, to name but a few — so we're expecting this to be good.

4. Fans are excited

Clearly, we're not the only ones who are waiting for "Mania" to drop — and fans have already shared their thoughts on the trailer.
