TheWeeknd – Trilogy

If you dont already know TheWeeknd, then today is the perfect day to take a listen. Today 11.13.12 he released his first album – Trilogy.
Trilogy – is a collection of the first three and only three (official) mixtapes of TheWeeknd.
There is, however, added a song for each of the three mixtapes, respectively the songs Twenty Eight, valerie and Till Dawn (Here Comes the sun). The three mixtapes he released in 2011 and which he has collected are: House of Balloons, Thursday and Echoes of Silence.
In fact, his album was already out yesterday in Denmark, but the official worldwide release is today.
It is not my immediate perception that he is so well known in Denmark, but in the U.S.A., Canada (his home country) and England, I think he’s fairly hyped, and its not without reason. He sings amazing and if you are a fan of R’n’B, then you have to give him a try. His style is something more sinister than most and his lyrics are mostly about women, sex, weed, parties and loneliness, but beautiful and with a melancholy decay.
I’m certainly very excited to see what he has to offer in the future and is one of many who cross our fingers, that he will soon be planning a European tour, with a concert in Copenhagen.
Ps. And YES, I have invested in his album, despite the fact that I have downloaded his mixtapes long ago.

Danish/dansk:

Hvis du ikke allerede kender TheWeeknd, så er i dag den perfekte dag til at, få kendskab til ham. I dag d. 13/11-12 har han nemlig udgivet sit første album – Trilogy.
Trilogy – er en samling af de tre første og tre eneste (officielle ) mixtapes af TheWeeknd.
Der er dog blevet tilføjet en sang til hver af de tre mixtapes, henholdsvis numrene Twenty Eight, valerie og Till Dawn (Here Comes the sun). De tre mixtapes han har udgivet i løbet af 2011 og som han nu har samlet er: House of Balloons, Thursday og Echoes of Silence.
Faktisk udkom hans album allerede i går i Danmark, men den officielle worldwide udgivelse er i dag.
Det er ikke min umiddelbare opfattelse at han er så kendt herhjemme, men i USA, Canada (hans hjemland) og England, vil jeg mene at han er forholdsvis hypet, og det er ikke uden grund. Han synger virkelig fantastisk, og hvis man er tilhænger af R´n´B, vil jeg mene man skal have kendskab til ham. Hans stil er noget mere dyster end det meste og hans tekster handler mest om damer, sex, weed, fester og ensomhed, men smukt og med en melankolsk efterklang.
Jeg er i hvert fald meget spændt på at se hvad han har at byde på i fremtiden og er en af mange, som krydser fingre for at han snart planlægger en Europa tour, med stop i København.
Ps. Og JA, jeg har selv investeret i hans album, på trods af, at jeg har downloadet hans mixtapes for lang tid siden.
