So, last night on Zane Lowe's show at 8pm, the moment a lot of UK fans have been waiting for, The Weeknd's first radio sessions were aired. Abel and the band played at Maida Vale studios, incredible versions of 'Wicked Games', 'The Zone', 'The Knowing' and 'Montreal'.
Hearing The Weeknd in session performing these tracks in the studio, the tracks are really intimate- its really just the listener and the band and you can really hear the raw passion and what an incredible voice this artist has, not to mention the talent of the musicians (see the guitar solo in 'The Knowing'- no words!)
One of the best BBC Radio 1 sessions I have personally ever heard. If you're a fan of The Weeknd, you need to take time to listen, check out the tracks from the session below.
'..What was instantly recognisable was the fact that the band and Abel... the chemistry was incredible' - Zane Lowe
