The Weeknd is baaaack! Just one day after surprising fans with news of a new album (and a fresh ‘do), the ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ singer dropped a the first single from the record. Listen to the epic song ‘Starboy’ right here!
Collaborating with electronic duo Daft Punk for the title track from his new album Starboy, The Weeknd created quite the incredible tune to get fans pumped up for his upcoming release. As if the 26-year-old singer, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, needed to give his fans any more reason to freak out, he dropped the head-bopping, bass-laden song on Sept. 22 — making his Nov. 25 album release date feel like an eternity away!
While the song still has the smooth rhythmic catchiness of any classic Weeknd track, joining forces with an electro-heavy group like Daft Punk hints that we’ll be hearing The Weeknd’s unique voice in new ways on Starboy. And if this single is any indication, there will be plenty of hooks on the new album. After listening to “Starboy” just once, try not to hum “ha-ha-ha, ha-ha” for the rest of the day! Hear the song below:
Before even hearing the first song from Starboy, fans got the idea that The Weeknd would be taking a bit of a different path on his third album. Upon announcing the record’s name and release date, The Weeknd also unveiled the album cover that revealed his new haircut. Yes, his signature wacky dreds have been chopped off, proving that he’s ready for a completely new endeavor with his next release. Considering how hot he looks, we are totally here for this new direction!
Starboy will be released on Nov. 25, with “Starboy” starting out the 18-song track list. Only one other song title has been revealed, “False Alarm,” but otherwise it looks like fans will have to wait until closer to the release date to see the rest of the track names. If the other songs sound anything like “Starboy,” this is sure to be one amazing album!
