Yesterday, The Weeknd previewed a new song on his Instagram called “Wild Love” produced by Cashmere Cat. The song turns out to be the title track from the producer’s upcoming album, and it also features Francis & The Lights.
“Wild Love” is slated to officially drop tonight when iTunes updates, but the song was uploaded to Spotify early and is available in different parts of the world. (It’ll be on Spotify in America at midnight.)
The song starts with Francis’ voluptuous harmonizing effect before The Weeknd enters singing “wild love” in various keys while Cashmere’s hauntingly soothing production punches your core.
This seems like an odd choice for a first single, but only from a mainstream radio standpoint, though. “Wild Love” should set a good baseline of the sounds to come from Chasmere Cat’s next album.
