Great production, cover and oevrall choon. Been playing it all of last and this week, played it on the weekends in Vienna and it feels good to play good tunes, that are quality wise on this level. Ps Ever since this song started circulating on the webs somewhen last week, remixes starting pouring out left and right and these two are the offical WINs.
Nach “House Of Balloons” und “Thursday” folgt nun der dritte Part zur Mixtapetrilogie von The Weeknd mit dem Namen “Echos of Silence”. Das komplette Mixtape gibts auf der Weeknd Homepage.

Seems like the wait is over, after a couple of tunes and a mixtape that everyone went crazy for, the Weeknd (or better yet Abel Tesfaye) quickly became one of the talks of the year and definitely one of the most prominent new acts this year, making people anticipate the debut album even more, even though the Weeknd released a whole set of 2011 anthems so far. ‘Rolling Stone’, ‘The Morning’, ‘Wicked Games’, ‘High for this’ and almost any other tune released so far.
I had ‘Rolling Stone’ (which reappears on the new album) on my chill Firewall Mixtape which was a kind of best of my ipod selection and i really had a hard time deciding which one of their tunes to put on. File under r/firstworldproblems
Decide yourself if it can live up to its expectations / people on Fb are a bit complaining that the mixdown is low on the vocals in comparison to the “House of Balloons” mixtape / true. Download & Enjoy “Thursday” full album here.
