An astute internet user found the tracklist for the Weeknd’s forthcoming Beauty Behind The Madness on Amazon Germany. The album will include 14 tracks, making it notably longer than Kiss Land (ten tracks) and the singer's three career-making mixtapes, which contained nine songs apiece.
Like previous Weeknd projects, this is mostly a single-person affair—at least on the vocal side of things (Max Martin and other impressive pop minds helped the singer write several tracks). The only credited feature is Lana Del Rey. Four of the tunes on Beauty Behind The Madness have already been successful singles: “Can’t Feel My Face,” “Earned It,” “The Hills,” and “Often.” A partially-finished version of another track, “In The Night,” leaked earlier this year. The New York Times recently called that tune “the new album’s most electric moment.”
