Published Jul 09, 2015Toronto noir & B singer the Weeknd's star keeps on rising. Having rolled out some new songs this spring, the details surrounding his third album have now emerged. The record is called Beauty Behind the Madness, and it's evidently due out on August 28 through Republic.
This information evidently emerged thanks to a pre-order link on iTunes in New Zealand. The link doesn't seem to be active anymore, but a screenshot is now circulating around the internet [via Kanye to The].
According to the pre-order screenshot, the album will contain 14 songs; although most of the song names haven't been filled in, previously unveiled cuts "Often," "The Hills" and "Can't Feel My Face" are included.
The Weeknd hasn't officially announced the August 28 release date, but he tweeted out confirmation that the album is indeed called Beauty Behind the Madness. A North American pre-order will be unveiled shortly. That's the album cover above.
