WATCH: The Weeknd Debuts New Track, ‘Mood Music Part 2′

Summer is for premiering hot new music on a private island.

Abel Tesfaye, aka The Weeknd, treated fans to a taste of the latest beats from his upcoming album during a private show in London. The track, tentatively titled “Mood Music Part 2″, drips with the artist’s signature sensuality that sounds like dark chocolate and wine.

He sings in smoky falsetto,

“I’m a prisoner to my addiction, I’m addicted to a life that’s so empty and so cold.”

Thick beats thump below.

“Mood Music” is likely to be featured on his LP Beauty Behind the Madness that drops on August 28. Pre-LP, the voice of the “The Hills” sits at the top of the Billboard Artist 100 above Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran. It’s also recently been rumored that Tesfaye is making sweet music with Bella HadidGigi Hadid’s little sister.
