Earlier this week, news broke that The Weeknd had signed with Universal Republic, placing him and his XO movement in major label territory. The deal involves the release of Trilogy, a fully mixed and mastered compilation of Abel Tesfaye's three widely received mixtapes--House of Balloons, Thursday and Echoes of Silence--and the first single from this package would be a complete version of the House of Balloons cut, "Wicked Games."
And whaddayaknow? The track is ours to stream today. Mixed and mastered, with all the naughty words taken out, you can expect this to receive some spin on radio airwaves in due time. Do remember: Trilogy arrives Nov. 13.
