Love To Lay must be a Tove Lo hint.

I find it a bit boring that he borrows from himself so much, when it comes to melodies. Is he already out of ideas and flows lol?

I Feel It Coming though, daymn

It's just small fragments, but Attention in the start of the chorus is like The Hills.

Verse of A Lonely Night is like verse of The Hills.

Six Feet Under is a more obvious one, when he borrows whole parts from Low Life, but that one is ok cuz it's intentional.

I dunno, but I heard these things immediately but maybe they aren't that similar haha.

New album, New Martin's songs!

Martin travelled from New York, where he’s been producing The Weeknd’s new album.

Well, it could be: always the same collaborators.

Martin McKinney, Illangelo, Ahmad Balshe.

But I think what they do it to get tracks to write... and tweak.

I see some similarities with Dancing With Our Hands Tied. The song is amazing, wasn't really expecting Abel to come back with Max. It's also the first time he doesn't work with savan, Peter or ali while working with Max.
