The Weeknd returns with a special surprise!
Giving us only hours to prepare, the hit-maker unleashes a brand new body of work: My Dear Melancholy. The 6-song set, which follows his 2016 album Starboy, is a welcome return to The Weeknd‘s Trilogy and Kiss Land era, with dark and haunting tracks that revolve around some familiar lyrical themes: Women, money, sex, and varying levels of world-weariness, loneliness and lust.
My Dear Melancholy carries The Weeknd‘s signature moody styling throughout, but with a subtle evolution in sound on tracks like “Call Out My Name,” “Try Me,” and “Privilege.” Production comes courtesy of Mike WiLL Made-It, Skrillex, Frank Dukes, and French DJ Gesaffelstein, who also appears on “I Was Never There” and “Hurt You.”
Like a bulk of The Weeknd‘s discography, My Dear Melancholy is hypnotizing, heartbreaking and purely next-level – Give it a spin below!
