It’s Thursday morning, and Abel Tesfaye is playing at our house. And he’s brought robots in addition to the coffee and doughnuts.
Last night The Weeknd dropped the title track to his upcoming third album, STARBOY, and it features some dance-minded assistance from Daft Punk. Listen to a snippet below via Apple Music.
The upbeat new jam, which is certainly more Weeknd than Daft Punk, hopefully sets the tone for The Weeknd’s new record, which contains new 18 tracks and hits the day after Thanksgiving, November 25. This appearance from Daft Punk also marks the French producers’ first bit of new music since 2013’s breakout and Grammy-winning record Random Access Memories.
“Starboy”, the single, is also available to stream on Spotify; check out the LP’s cover art via the Weeknd’s Instagram.
