UPDATE: The Weeknd Drops New Single ‘Starboy’ Feat. Daft Punk. Listen to the track here
After teasing a Daft Punk collab is in the works The Weeknd has revealed what he was plotting. Taking to social media, The Weeknd has announced a new studio album entitled Starboy. The XO crooner introduced the information with the LP’s cover-art, which was cooked up by esteemed photographer and visual artist Nabil. Back in early August, Wendy Goldstein, Executive VP of Republic records, revealed that there would be a recording session with Daft Punk and the Weekend, in a bit more of a nonchalant tone than we’d expect considering the magnitude of such a collaboration. No word on the specifics, so let’s hope a song drops soon. Earlier this month, Abel alluded to this next project being the “best-sounding” album he’s ever created.
