We got alot of love for The Weeknd here at WTGR. We named House of Balloons the fifth best album of last year. The first part of a trilogy of albums which will all now be remastered, remixed, edited and released as the suitably titled Trilogy album in November.
The first snippet we have is this, a re-dressed version of House of Balloons’ ‘Wicked Games’, the pinnacle of said record.
It keeps The Weeknd’s USP – that being Tesfaye’s sugary-sweet vocal – and suggests that Trilogy will have a sole purpose of getting The Weeknd nearer to a mainstream audience. The anonymous, lets-give-the-album-away-for-free shtick got him noticed, now it seems Trilogy will get him massive.
