Earlier this year Canadian R&B singer Abel Tesfaye released a free mix-tape entitled House of Balloons that caught the attention of almost every music critic and fan around. Using the moniker The Weeknd he promised two more mix-tapes in 2011. Last night he delivered Thursday, a dirtier, grittier follow-up. The album can immediately be identified as a The Weeknd record, but adds some new instrumentation with marching drums, horns, acoustic guitar, a guest spot from Drake and more vocal manipulation than ever before.
Oh, by the way, it is available for free from The Weeknd’s website.
