A few weeks back, reports flowed in announcing that The Weeknd and Daft Punk were in the studio together. Last night, we discovered that the project they were working on was the first single to be released off The Weeknd’s forthcoming album. Due out on November 25, Abel’s new record entitled Starboy has already created quite the stir with the first song which just so happens to be the title track.
Listen to the ominous fusion of electronic and hip-hop in one of the first songs Daft Punk has had their hand in since 2013. And enjoy the always shadowy pop-star lay vocals that are commensurate with the instrumentals.
