The Weeknd: Thursday
Free Download

It's already Friday, but late last night Toronto R&B superstar The Weeknd dropped another mixtape, Thursday. Having given it one spin so far, I can safely say that Abel Tesfaye has not abandoned the dark and broken world of House Of Balloons in favor of holding hands and skipping through the park - and why would he? But it isn't just more of the same; there is a definite shift in the production and Drake even shows up for a little cameo (go Canada!). It seems the site is having some issues at the moment, probably because thousands of people are attempting to download the new mix at the same time, but hey - why don't you add to the numbers? And more free music is on the way: a third mixtape, Echoes of Silence, is slated for release in the fall.
