Not even an entire day between the announcement and release of this surprise project.
Yesterday afternoon, The Weeknd announced to his fans that he would be releasing a brand new 6-track album that same day. The album arrives nearly two years after the alternative singer received a Grammy for his ‘Starboy’ album.
It’s worth noting that the new project is similar in sound to The Weeknd’s early work like ‘House of Balloons’ along with the storytelling and somber mood aspects. Details on production are slim, but Gesaffelstein is credited for two tracks and Skrillex has songwriting credits on “Wasted Times.”
Stream ‘My Dear Melancholy’ below and let us know if you’re feeling it.
