As you all know, Abel will be touring with Florence + the Machine for five dates this fall (get your tickets in the sidebar!). Florence Welch recently sat down with Spinner Canada and discussed her new “mysterious” friend.
In keeping with The Weeknd figurehead Abel Tesfaye’s mysterious reputation, Welch won’t say much about him beyond explaining that the tour just came about organically one day during a conversation with the artist.
“I was a really big fan. We hung out and just figured it would be a nice thing to do,” Welch says. “I don’t want to want to burst that mysterious bubble of his, though so… I’ll just say I’ve never actually seen him — he’s a hologram!”
In an exclusive interview with Karen Civil promoting his upcoming album Excuse My French, MMG rapper French Montana revealed an upcoming collaboration with The Weeknd.
Shout out to Travis Barker, I’m working with him. I’m working with The Weeknd, shout out to Kanye, shout out to the whole MMG, shout out to Bad Boy, shout out to the Coke Boys, shout out to Harry Fraud. Shout out to everybody who helped me on this album. I feel like it’s going to be something real special.
Watch the interview above and cop the album July 17th.
