The Weeknd Releases New Single "Starboy" featuring Daft Punk [LISTEN]

The title track of The Weeknd's new album is a collaboration with none other than... *drum roll*... Daft Punk.

"Starboy" marks the Parisian electronic duo's first official release since their 2013 album Random Access Memories, which swept the 2014 Grammy Awards winning five categories including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for "Get Lucky." The only other new music since then was the 2014 surfacing of the unreleased single with Jay Z "Computerized," which was made for the Tron: Legacy soundtrack.

For their triumphant return, Daft Punk agreed to team up with The Weeknd, who received several Grammy nominations last year and took home two awards.

Between the sexy vocals and the signature production, The Weeknd and Daft Punk just "Made [our] whole year in a week too, yah."

The Weeknd's album, Starboy, will arrive on November 25.
