Album leaks have become a common occurrence in the age of the internet, and they seem to be almost unavoidable for most artists. While some make a big fuss about leaks, The Weeknd himself leaked an 18-minute album preview following the surfacing of Beauty Behind The Madness, which is scheduled for an August 28 release via Republic.
Abel has been on an absolute tear on Billboard charts this year and it seems like you can’t even leave your house without having one of his tracks infiltrate your eardrums. He continues this trend on the new album which includes previous hits “Often,” “The Hills,” “Can’t Feel My Face,” along his Lana Del Rey collab titled “Prisoner,” which we featured earlier. Check out his album preview and support him by preordering on iTunes.

Ahead of the release of The Weeknd's highly anticipated forthcoming album Beauty Behind The Madness, one of the most hyped tracks off the project has surfaced on the internet! “Prisoner” features none other than Lana Del Rey, and just as we hoped, these two crooners have an unreal level of chemistry as their duet brings a female perspective on the otherwise all-male album. The track starts off slow and builds to a catchy, yet sorrowful and heartfelt hook with the typical menacing, eerie production going back to the sound from Abel's mixtape days. The two sadly reflect on their lifestyle in this track and Lana comes in and offers her slick falsetto vocals to round out the track and it ends with Lana’s spoken word putting the song in perspective. Stream the song below and enjoy.

They've kicked the energy in high gear while managing to highlight the unbelievable vocals, leading up to a melody filled drop. Here's what they had to say about the track:
"The second we heard the original track we knew we were gonna wanna somehow play it in our sets." – Dzeko & Torres
