The Weeknd Shares Demos & Unreleased Tracks From ‘Kiss Land’ Album
The Weeknd Demos Unreleased Kiss Land: “Kiss Land” has arrived at the No. 1 spot on the iTunes R&B chart seven years after its delivery, so the artist needed to celebrate.
Go for a stroll down memory lane with The Weeknd. The talented Canadian artist is returning to minutes from his debut studio album, Kiss Land. The album was delivered in 2013 and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard charts and, as per The Weeknd, was mostly about his fears.
“When I think about Kiss Land, I think about a terrifying place,” he told Complex back in 2013. “It’s a place I’ve never been to before that I’m very unfamiliar with… That’s what Kiss Land is to me, an environment that’s just honest fear. I don’t know who I am right now and I’m doing all these outlandish things in these settings that I’m not familiar with.”
On Thursday (August 13), The Weeknd tweeted that he would be sharing some unreleased music.
“Memento mori ep9 kiss land edition
