THE WEEKND | Echoes of Silence
The Weeknd (aka Abel Tesfaye) dropped a new free nine-song mixtape today called “Echoes of Silence”, the follow up to “House of Balloons” and “Thursday”. Listen to a track, “Initiation”, below. Download the mix for free courtesy of the artist’s website here. (The mixtape begins with a rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Dirty Diana”.) His site was crashing off and on, so if you fail at first, try it again. The Weeknd’s “House of Balloons” was named No. 3 on Their Bated Breath’s “Top 15 LPs of 2011” list earlier today. — David D.
