The Weeknd Shares Two Songs World Class Sinner / I'm A Freak And The Lure From The Idol Soundtrack

Friday, 09 June 2023 Written by Jon Stickler

Abel "The Weeknd" Tesfaye has shared two new songs from the soundtrack of his HBO series The Idol.

World Class Sinner / I'm A Freak and the show's theme song, The Lure, were previously teased by Tesfaye earlier this week. Posting to Instagram, he wrote:

"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 former is a soft, synth-led R&B jam that was co-written by Tesfaye with Asa Taccone, and features in the first episode as the comeback single by Lily-Rose Depp's pop singer leading character. The Lure, meanwhile, is a slow-building orchestral composition penned by Tesfaye and Mike Dean. 

They follow previously shared music from the series, including Double Fantasy with Future and Popular featuring Madonna and Playboi Carti. The series' official soundtrack album, 'The Idol, Vol. 1', is due out on June 30.

The Weeknd will begin the UK and European leg of his After Hours Til Dawn Tour in Manchester tomorrow (June 10). It supports his last two albums, 2020's 'After Hours' and 2022's 'Dawn FM'.
