Toronto's Abel Tesfaye is the man behind The Weeknd, an impressive R&B outfit with a look towards the future. The project was an internet success in 2011when Tesfaye released three thematic mixtapes over the course of the year. Those would be repackaged as Trilogy in 2012. Fast forward to now and The Weeknd is set to release their new album Kiss Land on Tuesday.
The record is streaming by way of NPR Music here, but you can check out a song this afternoon on The Report From The Alternate Side!
