Daft Punk make their first appearance since Yeezus for The Weeknd’s big new single
Starboy by NABIL

The Weeknd didn’t make us wait long for this one, did he? Abel Tesfaye is back in grand fashion—with a Daft Punk collaboration. Right off the bat, regardless of the song’s quality, this is kind of nuts because I can only think of two other times the legendary duo have stepped out into the wild this decade outside of their own Random Access Memories and Tron: Legacy soundtrack: for the first three songs on Yeezus and to hit Pharrell back for “Get Lucky”. So, “Starboy” has that going for it. (The song is named after Abel’s frothed-over upcoming album.) It also happens to be primed to fuck up the stale Billboard charts. Trust me; this has autumn hit written all over it. 

Starboy is out November 25.
