Listen to the Weeknd’s New Single Starboy Featuring Daft Punk

The song is the title track for the Canadian artist's upcoming new album

First, there was cover art. Now, a title track featuring Daft Punk promises to increase the anticipation for the Weeknd’s new album Starboy.

The Canadian Grammy-winning artist, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, dropped his new single on Apple Music and Spotify along with a preorder of the album on iTunes. The song, released Wednesday, combines the 26-year-old singer’s soulful voice with the French electronic duo’s smooth beats and retro-influenced sound.

With an expected release date of Nov. 25, fans will have to wait a couple of months for the full album. But for now, they can listen to Starboy here, and also enjoy Tesfaye’s new haircut.
