The Weeknd, Cleaner
Listen to the new, shortened version of “Wicked Games” with a rejuvenated sound
At the beginning of the week, word came out regarding the collaboration agreement between The Weeknd and Universal Republic, a division of Universal Music Group. The first fruit of this agreement will be the reissue of the three mixtapes of Abel Tesfaye’s project physically, with a rejuvenated sound (everything remixed and professionally remastered), packaged together under the name of “Trilogy”. Well, it seems that “Wicked Games” will act as the first single from the reissue. After the jump you can hear the new shortened version of the song (it lasts almost a minute less), which has been cleaned up (the “dirtiest” part of the lyrics have been deleted) and remastered. Do these touch-ups make any sense to you? Not to us—not much, anyway. We remind you that “Trilogy” will be out 13th November.
