The Weeknd: Love In The Sky + Belong To The World

With three 2011 mixtapes and the 2012 compilation album 'Trilogy' behind him, 23-year-old Ethiopian-Canadian singer-songwriter-producer Abel Tesfaye aka The Weeknd is ready to release his debut studio album 'Kiss Land' on September 10.  

His 'The Fall' tour kicks off September 6 in Vancouver and wraps up in London November 26.  Two consecutive concert dates are scheduled for each of the following cities: Vancouver, L.A., NYC, Boston, Chicago, Manchester, UK, and there will be a total of three shows in Toronto October 17, 19, 20.

NOTE on audio track: 
I'm posting the version of the single "Love in the Sky" that was uploaded to SoundCloud yesterday since I find it superior to the video version; it is also several minutes longer.

NOTE on video:
The stunning clip for "Belong to the World" was shot in Tokyo by renowned American director Anthony Mandler.   (director Anthony Mandler)
