The Weeknd & Daft Punk Release Collab Track ‘Starboy’

The Weeknd has dropped the title track from his forthcoming album Starboy, in the form of a collaboration with electronic giants Daft Punk.

Last month we caught wind of the fact that the American R&B artist had been spending some time in the studio with Daft Punk, and earlier today he revealed a slick new haircut and announced that his next album will be titled Starboy.

The album’s Daft Punk-featuring title track (below) takes some typically groovy Daft Punk-style cues in its pulsating techno production. Predictably, The Weeknd’s own vocals are understated, but they’re still dark and emotive.

Stream Starboy in full via Spotify, below.
