The album credits appeared at Abel's wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beauty_Behind_the_Madness

No more Max involvement apart from Can't Feel My Face and In The Night -which we already heard in full- but also Shameless features cowriting credits by Ali Payami, Savan Kotecha and Peter Svensson.

Update: the album leaked a week before release. You can hear a 18 minutes album sampler here: http://www.stereogum.com/1825771/stream-the-weeknds-18-minute-beauty-behind-the-madness-sampler/mp3s/

wow wow wow, WHAT AN ALBUM! Exactly what I was expecting. I mean I didn't have particular expectations, I just knew it'll blow my mind - and that's exactly what it did. While listening to it I was brought into many different worlds, simply awesome.

In The Night is SO The Original High! I don't mind though that it became Abel's song 8)

Shameless is co-produced by Max.


Quote
Notably, "Face" is the first No. 1 for Martin by a solo male artist. The rest of his chart-toppers have been recorded by either solo female artists or groups. And, after tallying his first two No. 1s as a writer in 1999-2000, he's added his next 19 all since 2008, with at least one in each year in that span.

Quite a lot comments. Love it when Max is mentioned and Max is discussed.
And I liked it..

Shameless is much better than the other two Max songs here, which are pretty dull MJ pastiches.
Love the minimalist guitar-led production, and the classic "I have no sha-ame - SHAME!" (nice take on the always-satisfying HEY! background chant in songs like Roar and Bad Blood)

I totally agree with you. Shameless is waaaaay better than the other two songs. I'm addicted to that song at the moment.

Tesfaye's hair also prompted one of his most WTF celebrity encounters. He was at a party for Sam Smith after this year's Grammys, at an $80 million mansion in Bel-Air. Katy Perry and Ed Sheeran were there; Disclosure were DJ'ing. "Everyone was hammered," Tesfaye says. "Sam had just won, like, every Grammy, so he was having the time of his life. Max Martin actually left because everyone was so drunk. Unfortunately, that was the one month I decided to stop drinking. Everybody was having a great time, all these cool things were happening, and I was shaking, like — 'Fuck, I really want a drink.'"
