The Weeknd debuts host of shelved ‘Kiss Land’ demos, unheard remix of Lana Del Rey’s ‘Money Power Glory’
Behind every LP is a stock of unreleased songs that almost made the finished product, but were ultimately superseded by other track listings. Kiss Land is no exception.
In a recent episode of Momento Mori, The Weeknd‘s Apple Music radio show, the “Blinding Lights” crooner took a trip down memory lane to recount the inspirations behind the 2013 album and shed some light on some of the Kiss Land potentials shelved seven years prior.
The parcel of unreleased demos debuted during Momento Mori encompassed “For Your Eyes,” “One of Those Nights,” “Heavenly Creatures,” “Another One of Me,” and “Angel Face,” in addition to a never-before-heard remix of Lana Del Rey‘s “Money Power Glory.” Del Rey’s original hails from her sophomore LP, Ultraviolence, released in 2014.
Whether the unwrapping precedes the full-fledged release of the saved materials remains unclear, but fortunately for fans, the unheard Weeknd rinse of “Money Power Glory” can be streamed below. Stream the full Momento Mori episode here.
