The Weeknd - After Hours (2xLP Vinyl)

  • Sale
  • Regular price €32,00
Tax included.

Fourth studio album by the Canadian singer. The album was produced primarily by The Weeknd, along with a variety of high-profile producers such as DaHeala, Illangelo, Max Martin and Metro Boomin. Music journalists have noted the album as an artistic reinvention for The Weeknd, with the introduction of new wave and dream pop influences, while thematically, 'After Hours' explores promiscuity, overindulgence, and self-loathing.

Blinding Lights is of course one of the biggest songs of 2020 and, just like Starboy and I Feel It Coming on his previous album, it’s a perfect pop song, instantly catchy and impeccably produced. But the whole album is full of quality songs with memorable hooks, and it really nails that mixture of retro synthpop that makes it sound like an 80s record and the modern production with the busy trap style hi-hats and sub bass hits that Abel’s voice sounds so natural over at this point. This plays out like a very consistent, confident album that is totally mainstream but loses none of the mystery and darkness that tends to be present in his work, going back to the Trilogy mixtapes. Sure, there is more polish now, but this is still music about heartbreak and alienation and even self-loathing, and whenever he goes upbeat there is an air of unease about the whole thing and the aftertaste is bittersweet.
