The Weeknd has announced details of his debut album 'Trilogy'.

The release will feature remixed and remastered versions of the Canadian R&B artist's three mixtapes, 'House Of Balloons', 'Thursday' and 'Echoes Of Silence' as well as three new tracks. The whole package will feature 30 tracks in total and will be released on November 12.

The Weeknd has been namechecked by a raft of artists, collaborating with Drake on several tracks, including 'Take Care' from his Number One album 'Take Care', and was asked by Lady Gaga to remix 'Marry The Night'. He also created a remix of 'Shake It Out' for Florence And The Machine and also features on 2 Chainz's new album 'Based On A TRU Story'.

The singer – real name is Abel Tesfaye – played his first UK show in June at intimate 300-capacity east London venue Wilton's Music Hall. Outside the sold-out show, tickets were being traded for £350, a full £330 over face value.

Watched by Katy Perry and Florence And The Machine's Florence Welch, the set featured 17 songs in total from the singer's various mixtapes as well as a cover of Michael Jackson's 'Dirty Diana'. He later returned to the UK to perform with Drake at July's Wireless festival.
