The Weeknd Calls His Next Project the"Best-Sounding Album" He's Ever Done

He also reveals its main inspirations.

The Weeknd is opening up about his anticipated next project. Following up his recent collaboration with Cashmere Cat, Abel Tesfaye connected with VMAN for a new interview. Speaking to writer Alex Frank, The Weeknd shared the following thoughts regarding his new LP:

“There are new inspirations on this album…The production feels aggressive but still sexy. The Smiths, Bad Brains, Talking Heads, Prince, and DeBarge play roles. We wrote it all in Los Angeles. I think it’ll be the best-sounding album I’ve ever done. It’s hard to label the sound because, when I first came out, nobody would label it R&B. I just want to keep pushing the envelope without it feeling forced.”

While these remarks will probably increase anticipation for The Weeknd’s next major release even more, let’s keep our fingers crossed for a new single in the near future. You can check out the entire interview with VMAN here. Recently, The Weeknd also earned a pair of Guinness World Records.
