Here’s the second free mixtape that The Weeknd, the blogosphere’s favourite artist of the year. It’s called Thursday and came out late last night for us Irish folk who would have been tucked up in bed. The first free album, House Of Balloons, came out in March, and you can still get it here. Thursday is nine songs long and is pretty much exactly what people hoped and wished for. ‘Life Of the Party’ in particular sounds ear-grabbing. You can listen to it below via Soundcloud, though that might be taken down pretty quickly (so let me know) and you can download it for free here. Did I mention it’s free?
