Last month, it was revealed that Daft Punk was back in the studio with the Weeknd, when a Universal Music executive nonchalantly dropped the fact in conversation while speaking as part of a “hitmakers roundtable” hosted by Billboard. It appears the collaboration was a little closer to seeing the light of day than we realized.
“Starboy” is the title track of the new album from the Weeknd, due for release on November 25. It’s a record that sees the pop R&B stylings of its frontman merged with the kind of cybernetic sounds we’ve come to know and love from the iconic French duo.
The Weeknd featuring Daft Punk “Starboy” is available now, and you can hear a short clip below that’s being previewed on Facebook.
