Abel Makkonen Tesfaye aka The Weeknd, a 31-year-old Canadian singer, has decided to release his debut mixtape ‘House of Balloons’ in its raw and authentic form. He announced the reissue of his debut album ‘House of Balloons’ ten years after its release. It will feature Weeknd’s previous hits like ‘Wicked Games’, ‘Loft Music’ and many more.

The 10 year reissue will be available on all streaming platforms and will include all the samples and original mixes that were eliminated from the previous mixtape. He wrote, “On Sunday for its 10 year anniversary I’m releasing House of Balloons on all streaming platforms for the first time in its original incarnation. With the original mixes and samples.”

The original mixtape became widely popular due to its diverse and extensive samples. The album featured an Aaliyah sample on ‘What You Need’, a Cocteau Twins sample on ‘The Knowing’, a Siouxsie and the Banshees’ sample on ‘Happy House’ and Beach house samples.

The Weeknd has collaborated with a New York artist Daniel Arsham on ‘House of Balloons’ wherein he will provide his vision of the album’s cover art and a camouflage print varsity jacket. He said, “The summer of 2011 will always be marked by House of Balloons. Like a time travel device, the album transports me back to that specific moment in time every time I listen.”

“It is a great privilege to work with The Weeknd and XO team to reimagine the iconic album art of House of Balloons as an eroded sculpture for the 10 year anniversary”, David Arsham added.

The Weeknd’s ‘House of Balloons’ is all set to release today at 3 p.m. ET. It will be available for 48 hours on singer’s online store. If you want to fetch more details about the release of ‘House of Balloons’ you can login to Weeknd’s website.
