The Weeknd has revealed that his new album will be titled 'Kiss Land'.

The LP will be the singer's proper studio follow-up his mixtape trilogy and is due for release later on this year.
Last month, The Weeknd announced a string of UK tour dates for November 2013, following previously announced dates in later this month (March). It is likely the dates will be in support of new material, which he teased the prospect of back in January by posting a picture a picture of his computer desktop, which featured a folder named '2013 untitled album'. He then followed it up with a tweet, writing: "If you thought my shit knocked before... 2013."

The Weeknd will play:

Manchester Ritz (March 20)
Glasgow ABC (22)
Birmingham HMV Institute (22)
London Electric Ballroom (24-27)
Birmingham Nia (November 22)
Manchester O2 Apollo (23)
London O2 Arena (26)


Last month, (February 13), The Weeknd unveiled a revealing new video for his track 'Twenty Eight', which appears as one of the bonus tracks on last year's 'Trilogy' compilation – scroll down to watch it. The clip sees the R&B singer being interviewed by a white-haired man before a spell watching pole dancers gyrate on stage through a one-way mirror.
