Background[edit | edit source]

In 2011, The Weeknd released series of mixtapes — House of Balloons, Thursday, and Echoes of Silence — garnered both critical acclaim and a growing fan base. The mixtapes were principally recorded with producers Doc McKinny and Illangelo at Dream House and Site Sound Studios in Toronto; additional sessions took place at Sterling Road Studios.

In September 2012, The Weeknd signed with Republic Records in a joint venture with his own imprint label XO. The mixtapes were subsequently remastered and compiled for Trilogy, along with three previously unreleased songs, which were recorded at Liberty Studios in Toronto. "Twenty Eight", "Valerie", and "Til Dawn (Here Comes the Sun)" were included as bonus tracks at the end of each of the compilation's discs.
