Daft Punk Has Another Feature on The Weeknd’s Album

Do you love The Weeknd’s “Starboy” featuring Daft Punk? Well get ready because we have good news – you can look forward to another track from the R&B/dance collaboration.

According to a Wall Street Journal article written about The Weeknd, the singer described how working with Daft Punk was an otherworldly experience and that they were working on one song when, “Tesfaye overheard de Homem-Christo playing with a drum loop on his phone. Twenty minutes later, he had written ‘Starboy’ to that unfinished beat”.

The enormous news was just a mere detail in the article that didn’t take up much space at all stating, “the remarkably spontaneous sessions yielded two songs on the album.” So now it’s official that two of the 18 tracks on Starboy are written with dance legends Daft Punk. This is surprising news because they rarely work with other artists and produce music that isn’t their own, let alone be apart of two tracks for the same artist.

The wait for Starboy won’t be long. The Weeknd’s highly anticipated album arrives November 25, 2016. Stay tuned!
