The Weeknd Confirms Another Collaboration With Daft Punk On ‘Starboy’ Album


The Weeknd and Daft Punk are at it again. About one month ago, The Weeknd shook the world with his "Starboy" collaboration featuring the iconic French electronic duo. Shortly after, they dropped a music video to build even more buzz around the release. Now that everyone's talking about it, we move to an even greater conversation. The Weeknd and Daft Punk part two.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, The article notes:

"The remarkably spontaneous sessions yielded two songs on the album."

The Weeknd had this to say of his experience in Daft Punk's studio: 

"Their studio is like a spaceship, there’s a lot of gear, but the way they make music, the way they explain it, is very cinematic. It’s like they’re reading a page out of a novel—‘We want to make sure that at the end, it feels like the sun’s coming up, and maybe there’s a car chase.’ They can get technical, but it was interesting how they visualize making music."

Starboy comes out on Nov. 25. Stay tuned for the second Daft Punk collaboration off the LP and enjoy!
