As the new HBO show “The Idol” starring Lily-Rose Depp debuted, The Weeknd released “Double Fantasy” with Future with production by Mike Dean, who also made a cameo in the show.
As a follow-up, The Weeknd released “Popular” in June with Madonna and Playboi Carti. Now, the singer has released two new tracks for The Idol’s second episode: “World Class Sinner / I’m A Freak” and “The Lure.”
The Weeknd wrote on social media, “I was planning on dropping the whole soundtrack for idol by the finale, but I’m too hyped… Instead, I wanna drop new music from the show every week with each episode. I’m excited for you guys to hear what we’ve been cooking and all these incredible artists that are a part of this show… this week… Jocelyn’s pop song ‘world class sinner’ and ‘the lure’ (theme score)… episode 2 this Sunday.”
The Idol soundtrack will be released on June 30th.
