The Weeknd announces new album

With all of the momentum in the world right now, The Weeknd’s upcoming album — the first since 2013’s Kiss Land — was surely on the way, and it looks like it’s coming very soon.

On the ‘gram today, The Weeknd revealed the album title and cover — Beauty Behind The Madness.

I dig the title and look forward to seeing if Kanye West is indeed the lone feature, as rumored by Ed Sheeran last week. With Weeknd adding “pre-order available shortly,” I have a hunch we won’t have to wait too long this summer to hear the album!

UPDATE: We won’t have to. The OVO Forums discovered a New Zealand iTunes pre-order link that indicates 14 songs in total, previous single “Often” joining “The Hills” and “Can’t Feel My Face”, and an August 28th release date.
