The Weeknd and his imprint XO have signed a “strategic partnership” with Universal Music subsidiary Republic Records, which will commercially release his mixtape trilogy on November 13th.
Trilogy contains House of Balloons, Thursday, and Echoes of Silence, all mixed and mastered for the first time. Both the physical and digital editions will also feature new, unreleased material.
According to the press release:
The joint venture between Republic Records and the Canada-based XO sees The Weeknd’s vision preserved and magnified on a much larger scale. The XO initiative has grown from a small collective– with roots based in the metropolitan streets of Toronto– to a marquee business partner, and it will only evolve further within this structure.
In support of the re-release, The Weeknd will hit the road next week, and you can find the full schedule below.
