The Weeknd Announces ‘Beauty Behind the Madness’ Album, Release Date
It's no secret that the Weeknd is synonymous with baby-making music. After injecting passion into his hit single, "Earned It," the Toronto native is giving hapless romantics more of a reason to smile this summer with the follow-up to his 2013 LP, Kiss Land.
The Weeknd revealed that his sophomore album, Beauty Behind the Madness, is on the way. "ALBUM TITLE: BEAUTY BEHIND THE MADNESS (PRE-ORDER AVAILABLE SHORTLY)," he wrote on Twitter Thursday (July 9). The album cover for Beauty Behind the Madness features a cut up black-and-white photo of a somber-looking Abel.
With a slew of singles at his disposal including "Often," "The Hills" and "Can't Feel My Face," it appears that these tracks will finally have a home on Aug. 28 when the singer releases Beauty Behind the Madness. He already has a chart-topping single in "Earned It" and "Can't Feel My Face" is sitting comfortably on the Billboard Hot 100.
After performing at the BET Awards with Alicia Keys last month, The Weeknd is now prepping for his big headlining performance at Made in America. The Labor Day weekend festival takes place Sept. 5 and 6, a week after the release of Beauty Behind the Madness.
Earlier this year, the Weeknd performed at Coachella and he'll hit the stage at Lollapalooza next month.
