The Weeknd, ‘Kiss Land’: Fall Music Preview 2013
Release Date: Sept. 10
Label: XO/Republic Records
The Weeknd’s Abel Tesfaye makes his full-length studio debut with "Kiss Land." After signing to Republic last year, the nocturnal-sounding alt-R&B artist rereleased three mixtapes as compilation album "The Trilogy." Though the music was already available for free, the album peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and No. 2 on the Top R&B Albums chart. "Kiss Land" is Tesfaye’s first original release for Republic.
