And has revealed the album’s release date.
Fresh on the heels of announcing his third full-length Starboy, The Weeknd has released the title track which features Daft Punk. It’s the first taste of what he says will be an “aggressive but sexy” album and his “best-sounding”.

“The production feels aggressive but still sexy. The Smiths, Bad Brains, Talking Heads, Prince, and DeBarge play roles,” the singer said in an interview with VMAN earlier this month. “We wrote it all in Los Angeles. I think it’ll be the best-sounding album I’ve ever done. It’s hard to label the sound because, when I first came out, nobody would label it R&B. I just want to keep pushing the envelope without it feeling forced.”
Starboy is set for release on November 25. Listen to the Daft Punk-assisted title track below.
