Along with Frank Ocean, brooding and futuristic musician The Weeknd has had quite a successful year or so, and he hasn't even released an official studio LP yet. Thankfully, that's going to change...

The Weeknd has signed with Republic Records, and unveiled details about the release of his mixtape trilogy (House Of Balloons/Thursday/Echoes Of Silence) - and new material too. The trilogy will be released on November 13th and if you haven't heard the records yet (or just want to have them in physical form, a good thing to have), they're all very special collections of music that'll pique your earbuds. Below, you can see a press release pertaining to the trilogy's upcoming release and The Weeknd joining Rebublic Records.

"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."
