Published Nov 07, 2012A couple weeks after the Weeknd (aka Abel Tesfaye) teased fans with a snippet of new tune "Valerie," which will be on his upcoming Trilogy release, the song has now leaked in full.
This is the second BBC Radio 1 rip to arrive this week, following yesterday's "Twenty Eight," and this one fits the murky R&B singer's usual M.O. Atop some minimalist piano plunks and a beat made up of tinny snare hits and mechanical scrapings, Tesfaye lets loose a barrage of downright depressing falsetto cries over a doomed secret relationship.
You can stream the song below courtesy of the XO fansite.
As previously reported, Trilogy drops November 13 via Universal Republic.
UPDATE: You can also see a preview of the Weeknd's new "The Zone" video featuring Drake at the bottom of the page.
