Canadian R&B sensation The Weeknd has announced STARBOY the follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2015 album Beauty Behind The Madness. Check out it’s cover art shot by the prolific music video director NABIL below.
In his interview with VMAN, The Weeknd stated that 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.”
