With the hype surrounding the release of After Hours, XO Records frontman and global R&B superstar The Weeknd has teamed up with Spotify for an exclusive album listening session. The event, which will begin at the same time the album drops (9 p.m. PST/12 a.m. EST), will happen alongside the Toronto-native, who will presumably offer a bit of context to each of the tracks as they’re streamed out live. Anyone with a Spotify free or premium account will have access to the event, which can be found here.
The anticipation surrounding After Hours has been largely unrivaled this year in terms of new releases, becoming the most pre-added album ever on Apple Music with nearly one million global listeners pre-saving the project to their libraries. The 14-track effort, which is likely heading to the top of the Billboard charts, will include contributions from Frank Dukes, Oneohtrix Point Never, Metro Boomin, Illangelo, Kevin Parker, Elton John, Max Martin, and more.
