Alongside a clip from inside the recording booth, he simply wrote: "mastering".

The teased release could be something to do with The Weeknd's forthcoming Marvel comic or the first track from his next record.

Issue one of 'The Weeknd Presents: Starboy' is out on June 13, and stars the rapper himself as the hero.

A synopsis for the comic reveals the superhero will battle the "cannibalistic criminal mastermind Jack 'The Chef' Smiley" to save the city of Alphatron.

Adding that the evil-doer is "not content with brutally murdering his victims, [and] also feasts upon their flesh". 

Speaking about his alter ego, The Weeknd said previously: "'Starboy' is the next chapter in this chronicle, this saga.

"I guess this is the fourth chapter. He's a character that we created. It's so funny, we want to create a comic out of him as well [...] He's a cool, dope character that makes appearances a lot on the album. 

"He's definitely made his appearance in different records in the past as well. He's a more braggadocious character that we all have inside of us."

The comic comes after The Weeknd teamed up with Kendrick Lamar for Marvel's Black Panther soundtrack 'Pray for Me'
