The Weeknd Goes Daft Punk, Shares 20-Second 'John Carpenter' Snippet

Abel Tesfaye prolongs foreplay for 'Kiss Land' album

The Weeknd is such a tease. Anticipation for Abel Tesfaye's Trilogy followup was already high back in January when he tweeted a photo of a computer folder labeled "Untitled 2013 Album." A couple months later, the Alt-R&B poster boy dropped said LP's title — Kiss Land — with no other information. Now, Tesfaye has shared a snippet of a brand new song, and when we say "snippet," we mean "snippet." A grainy YouTube clip titled "John Carpenter" contains no more than 20 seconds of murky new material. No word yet on whether the sample will make its way onto Kiss Land, but its late-night aura would brood comfortably on any Weeknd release.
