The Weeknd – Echoes of Silence

Mysterious Canadian R&B act The Weeknd dropped Echoes of Silence earlier today – his third free sextape mixtape of the year.  This new one features eight more original jams (one a Clams Casino production, dude’s everywhere lately) and a cover of Michael Jackson’s “Dirty Diana” (dude’s not).  Overall though there seem to be less of the dirty come-ons than we’re used to from singer Abel Tesfaye.  After a couple of X rated albums, I guess we can consider this one his NC-17.  The plaintive, piano-based title track actually sounds tender.  Regardless, after two listens today I’m feeling this one way more than Thursday.
