When Abel Tesfaye a.k.a The Weeknd first released the critically acclaimed album House of Balloons, there were three stand out hits that made this dark R&B singer the darling of every blog, magazine, and trending media outlet. “What You Need”, “Loft Music”, and “The Morning (Original Version)” turned The Weeknd from a virtually unknown singer from Toronto into a worldwide phenomenon. Unbeknownst to the rest of the world, these sexy and brooding beats were made by Jeremy Rose. A Halifax Nova Scotian native who met Abel at at poutin spot in Toronto. The Weeknd began as a collaboration between Jeremy and Abel, and after a sour fallout, The Weeknd was no longer the duo it had originally been.
Fast forward a year. Jeremy Rose is ready to release his own Ep under the moniker “Zodiac“. The five-track EP will be available for digital download on September 24th and on vinyl at the later date of October 8th via Vase.
Below you can stream a track of Jeremy’s earlier work. One can safely assume that the vein of dark and entrancing mood heard on this track will be found throughout the new release.
