Fans can hear The Weeknd‘s debut album Kiss Land a week early thanks to NPR.

The sexy R&B crooner The Weeknd (aka Abel Tesfaye) has already released three tracks including “Live For” featuring his buddy, Drake, “Love In The Sky” and  “Belong to the World,”which includes a sample of Portishead’s “Machine Gun” from their 2008 studio album, Third. Portishead’s Geoff Barrow later lashed out at Tefaye, saying the sample was not approved. Tesfaye has said this album was inspired by Portishead.

Though this is The Weeknd’s first official album, he made a name for himself with a string of successful mixtapes and singles, which were repackaged last November into Trilogy, a 30-song compilation that included the hit “Wicked Games.”

Stream Kiss Land over at NPR.
