Abel Tesfaye has had quite the unique career in comparison to other artists today. In 2011, he released three amazing mixtapes with an original sound and artist name, The Weeknd. He continued to conceal his identity by avoiding interviews until his fame finally caught up to him. After signing with Universal, he rebranded his mixtapes as the compilation album, Trilogy. Finally, after over a year of countless features and sold out shows, Abel is ready for his first official release, Kiss Land. While the album releases on September 10th, he has teamed up with NPR to offer fans free streaming via their website. The ten track album features his day-one associate Drake and can be checked out here.
