Canadian artist The Weeknd‘s fourth album, also his first album in four years, “After Hours” dropped on Thursday night, and the 14-track collection runs about 56 minutes. But this time around he goes much darker than his previously released singles as he sings of a past relationship that was ruined by infidelity.
“But this world is such a, such an evil place/Man, these hoes will always find a way/Cause when I’m on the liquor, I go crazy,” –Escape From LA
Almost exactly a month ago, The Weeknd dropped the album’s title track of the same name and revealed the album’s cover art and release date.While his last album, 2016’s Starboy, featured Lana Del Rey, Kendrick Lamar, and Daft Punk, After Hours arrives with no assists.
The R&B star will soon be embarking on the After Hours world tour, and the first stop is set to take place on June 11 in Vancouver.
