The Weeknd offers to personally call fans who leave him a voicemail

His latest promo stunt for new album 'Kiss Land' takes a personal twist

The Weeknd has trailed his new album 'Kiss Land' and music video by opening a phone line and offering to call fans who leave a message for him.

Fans who call the Ontario number 647-794-9223 get a message from Abel Tesfaye, thanking them for supporting him from being homeless to travelling the world. You can hear the full one-minute message left by the reclusive singer below. The number was initially revealed in the music video trailer above. In the brightly colored commercial, a girl asks "Do you like music?" between clips taken from a forthcoming NSFW video for the song 'Pretty'.

'Kiss Land' is the Canadian R&B singer's first album to be released officially, following three mixtapes which were distributed for free online before being packaged as the 'Trilogy' release in 2012. 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'.

The 'Kiss Land' tracklisting is:

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


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)
