What an exciting week in music! In the past week alone, all of our faves from Lana Del Rey to The Weeknd to Crystal Castles have released new material. Turn up your speakers and check it all out after the jump:
Marry The Night | Lady Gaga (The Weeknd Remix)
Sweet Jesus, it’s here! There’s something so mysterious and captivating about anything that comes from The Weeknd. Definitely not your predictable remix. This is just a small taste of what will appear on the upcoming Born This Way The Remix project which will arrive on November 21. Check it out above!
Initiation | The Weeknd
The Weeknd is back with a dark, gritty tale of lustful experiences. Leaving his normal laid back beats behind; “Initiation” is a bit of a change of pace from his past tracks, yet a pleasant surprise.
This track is rumored to be off the Toronto natives upcoming collection entitled “Echoes of Silence”. Be sure to check out his remix of Florence and The Machine’s “Shake It Out” and the upcoming remix of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”.
Shake It Out (Remix) | Florence + the Machine (ft. The Weeknd)
Canadian narco-R&B project The Weeknd have done remix duty on “Shake It Out,” the excellent new single from Florence & The Machine. They’ve transformed the song from a rousing anthem into a slithery, downbeat thing, feeding Florence Welch’s voice through enough filters that it sounds a bit like Abel Tesfaye’s. (Abel himself doesn’t sing on the track.) Drake must be so happy right now!
