New The Weeknd Song
2013-05-17 by fish CONTRIBUTOR | 89 Comments
The title track from The Weeknd's upcoming major label début, Kiss Land, has been released. The track appears to be the title track, and clocks in at just over seven and a half minutes whilst steering slightly away from the pop sensibilities of Trilogy.

Love this. The atmosphere is definitely back and that tempo change seems really natural.

The atmosphere is definitely there, first half is better than the second imo.

It's good. Will probably make more sense in the context of the album, like XO/The Host and The Party &
The After Party did

Nah it's definitely a grower. I'm liking the vibes too. It's got the same general feel as the mixtapes
but it has its own personality, like each of them did.

I agree with you fish. about the whole context thing. I just hope he doesn't compromise on any of the tracks, I mean this gives us some sort of indication but not enough.

the second part reminds me of Drake

overall, it's a pretty good song. definitely different from his previous material. it's to be expected though since his music is becoming more accessible, not that that is a bad thing but just worth noting.

That wasn't too bad, but nowhere near as good as any of his mixtape material. Considering how amazing those three were, it was only a matter of time before he ran out of steam.

you just have this uppity way of always having to go against the grain and then when someone disagrees you feel the need to go to
the utmost lengths to defend yourself

going against the grain isn't intentional and if anything I wish I agreed with the general consensus
more just to avoid getting stick for it

getting defensive over it has probably developed instinctively cos of all that stick but yeah I can
understand that
