Before the Starboy became a pop sensation, fans fell in love with The Weeknd through a three-part mixtape series back in 2011, showcasing his ability as a woozy R&B artist. Five years ago today (Nov. 13), the 27-year-old released the trifecta together for a project titled, Trilogy.
To celebrate the landmark five-year anniversary, The Weeknd created a limited edition capsule that will be a must-have for any Abel stan. The newly pressed vinyl set includes House of Balloons, Echoes of Silence and Thursday. Fans will also receive exclusive XO merchandise and photos that commemorate the iconic Trilogy era.
The collection is limited to 1,000 vinyl box sets, so act swiftly if you want to get your hands on the perfect gift for the Starboy fan in your life. Everything mentioned above is available for purchase on the Toronto native’s official website.
