No further information along the lines of a release date has been announced, but the R&B up-and-comer (real name Abel Tesfaye) was recently a featured artist on the Juicy J single ”One of Those Nights,” which dropped Sunday (March 17) on iTunes.
The Weeknd roared onto the scene with a string of successful mixtapes and singles, which were repackaged last November into Trilogy, a 30-song compilation that included the hit “Wicked Games,” which has peaked at No. 53 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at No. 5 on the Hot R&B Songs charts.
Trilogy was certified Gold by the RIAA and has sold over 289,000 copies in the U.S. alone. The album will see a six-record vinyl release on Mar. 26.
In January, Tesfaye announced the new album with a photo of his laptop screen, on which was a file which read ’2013 Untitled Album.’
