Thanks to my friend Elena for pointing me to Weeknd’s unreleased material this morning.
From Fact Mag:
Earlier this year, as you doubtless know, a more-anonymous-than-most r’n’b singer called The Weeknd released a mixtape. It was called House of Balloons, and it was very, very good.
Last night, six previously unreleased tracks leaked into the internet abyss, apparently from when The Weeknd, real name Abel Tesfaye, worked with a production team called The Noise. You can stream them below [via The Fader, via Pigeons & Planes], as well as a new Weeknd track called ‘Rolling Stone’ from his YouTube channel.
No download yet, but I’ll keep my eyes open for one.
