The Weeknd Announces New Album 'Kiss Land' Out On September 9th 2013

Critically revered Canadian artist The Weeknd, whose 3 mixtapes established the enigmatic virtuoso as one of the most remarkable, intriguing and soulful artists to emerge in decades, releases his second full-length album 'Kiss Land', after months of speculation on September 9th, via XO/Universal Republic/Island Records in the UK

Lead single 'Belong To the World' is out now, and the video has already had over a million views on YouTube. 'Kiss Land' follows his unanimously celebrated platinum-selling 2012 debut, 'Trilogy'. Tapping into that same signature mystique, 'Kiss Land' is an elegant pastiche of love, longing, and lust set to a futuristic soundtrack of shimmering keys, disruptive synths, and airy atmospherics.
 
Covering Complex Magazine's August issue, he speaks about the new album, his vision, and what's next for himself. He also recently scored two MTV VMA nominations in the categories of "Artist to Watch" and "Best Visual Effects" for the "Wicked Games" video.
 
Hot on the heels of his UK tour earlier this year, which included an incredible four night run at London's Electric Ballroom, The Weeknd returns to the UK in November playing shows in Birmingham and Manchester, and ending the tour  at London's massive O2 Arena.  The dates are as follows:
