The Weeknd currently has multiple hits on his hands, and soon, he’ll have an album in which these popular songs can call home.
The mercurial R&B artist has announced that the follow-up to 2013’s Kiss Land will be titled Beauty Behind The Madness, and shared the album artwork, which looks a lot like the “Can’t Feel My Face” cover. An Aug. 28 release date has been bandied about the Internet, and although an official date has yet to be announced, a source confirmed that the album will be arriving that day.

Beauty Behind The Madness has been preceded by “Can’t Feel My Face,” which stays at its peak of No. 6 on the Hot 100 this week, and “The Hills,” which moves into the Top 20 on this week’s tally. The Weeknd also scored a smash earlier this year with “Earned It (Fifty Shades Of Grey),” from the Fifty Shades Of Grey soundtrack.
A little over a week after the release of his new album, the Weeknd will headline the Made In America festival in Philadelphia over Labor Day weekend. The singer-songwriter closed out one day of Coachella earlier this year, and will perform at Lollapalooza next month.
