The Weeknd has had no trouble blowing up the charts with his last two singles, making fans eager for the Aug. 28 release of his new album, Beauty Behind The Madness. He unveiled the album's tracklist via social media Tuesday (Aug. 4), and fans have two more reasons to be excited: Ed Sheeran and Lana Del Rey.

Sheeran had sneakily hinted at their collaboration in June with a cryptic tweet that read "DRKTMS," which The Weeknd retweeted yesterday following the tracklist reveal.

Beauty Behind the Madness is The Weeknd's follow-up to 2013's Kiss Land and will include his top 10 smashes "Can't Feel My Face" (currently No. 2 on the Hot 100) and the Fifty Shades of Grey hit "Earned It."

Prior to the album's release, The Weeknd will perform at Billboard's inaugural Hot 100 Music Festival. Check out the rest of the lineup and get your tickets here.
