You bring the drugs, he'll bring the pain...or at least the album.

Everyone's favorite drug-fueled, overdose R&B superstar, The Weeknd, announced the name of his upcoming album, Beauty Behind The Madness, today. The album comes on the heels of a couple platinum records from the Canadian crooner in "Often" and "Earned It," though the latter will not be included on the full-length. His two most recent singles, "The Hills" and "Can't Feel My Face," are trending towards similar distinction, currently in Top 20 and Top 10 chart positions.

According to The Weeknd's Twitter, Beauty Behind The Madness will be "Chapter 3" in the artist's story, following the first two chapters, 2012's Trilogy and 2013's Kiss Land. Based off of the strength of its singles, this album should be a great one, so call up the plug, head to a dark, cemented basement devoid of any furniture and start setting up your ideal Weeknd listening atmosphere.
