THE WEEKND | Initiation
The Weeknd, the stage name of Toronto singer-rapper Abel Tesfaye, posted a new song off his upcoming record, “Echoes of Silence”, which was scheduled to be out sometime this fall. “Initiation” is a taste of what’s to come. It’s another highly wanton dance mix of soul and eery electronics with verses alluding to oral sex and ‘riding one out’. You can download the track for free via The Weeknd XO website. This single follows on the heels of The Weeknd remixing Florence And The Machine’s “Shake It Out” last week. — David D. Robbins Jr.
