THE WEEKND ANNOUNCES NFT AUCTION ON 4/3 VIA NIFTY GATEWAY
EXCLUSIVE NEW & UNRELEASED SONG AND ARTWORKS AVAILABLE AT AUCTION
 

 
The Weeknd has announced a new, exclusive NFT collection of artwork and music, available exclusively on Nifty Gateway. The limited-time auction will be held on Saturday, April 3rd at 11am PST / 2pm EST. The collection will include new music and limited edition art.
 
First, an open edition flash sale will be held for three different visual artworks, each with a filtered segment of the new song. There will be an unlimited amount of these works available to purchase for a limited time.
 
Second, there will be a 24-hour auction for an exclusive 1-of-1 piece of art backed by the new song in full and unfiltered. The winner of this auction will be the only person to have this song, as The Weeknd will not be releasing the song on any platforms in the future.
 
The artwork for these pieces was developed by Strange Loop Studios in collaboration with The Weeknd. 
 
"We couldn't be more excited to welcome The Weeknd to Nifty Gateway to release their genesis NFT collection to the world. As one of the most creative and boundary pushing artists and musicians on the planet, we are insanely excited to have The Weeknd join the NFT space." - Nifty Gateway Team
 
"The Weeknd's entry into the NFT space marks a seminal moment in NFT history. One of the most influential R&B singers of our generation creating in this new medium is huge validation for the entire NFT space. We're thrilled to present this unique, beautiful collection to the world." - Duncan Cock-Foster, Co-Founder of Nifty Gateway
 
“Blockchain is democratizing an industry that has historically been kept shut by the gatekeepers. I’ve always been looking for ways to innovate for fans and shift this archaic music biz and seeing NFT’s allowing creators to be seen and heard more than ever before on their terms is profoundly exciting. I intend to contribute to this movement and can see that very soon it will be weaved into the music industry's mechanics”  - Abel Tesfaye (The Weeknd)
