The Weeknd has unveiled the tracklisting for his forthcoming album, 'Kiss Land'.

The album, which is due out on September 9, features the previously aired collaboration with Drake, 'Live For', as well as a Pharrell remix of 'Wanderlust'. 'Kiss Land' is The Weeknd's official debut album, following a number of mixtapes and compilations.

The 'Kiss Land' tracklisting is:

'Professional'
'The Town'
'Adaptation'
'Love in the Sky'
'Belong to the World'
'Live For' [ft. Drake]
'Wanderlust'
'Kiss Land'
'Pretty'
'Tears in the Rain'
'Wanderlust' (Pharrell Remix)
'Odd Look' (Kavinsky ft. the Weeknd)


The Weeknd – real name Abel Tesfaye – told Complex magazine via hotnewhiphop.com that 'Kiss Land', had a lot in common with horror movies, saying: "A lot of it is inspired by filmmakers like John Carpenter, David Cronenberg, and Ridley Scott, because they know how to capture fear. That's what 'Kiss Land' is to me, an environment that's just honest fear."

He continued: "I don't know who I am right now and I'm doing all these outlandish things in these settings that I'm not familiar with. To me, it's the most terrifying thing ever. So when you hear the screams in the record and you hear all these horror references and you feel scared, listen to the music because I want you to feel what I'm feeling. 'Kiss Land' is like a horror movie."

The R&B singer will play three UK dates in November.

The Weeknd will play:

Birmingham NIA (November 22)
Manchester O2 Apollo (23)
London O2 Arena (26)
