Daft Punk and The Weeknd aren’t done collaborating
Daft Punk and The Weeknd aren’t done yet. After exceeding expectations with their high-octane collaboration “Starboy“, The Weeknd has confirmed a second collaborative effort in a recent interview with The Wall Street Journal. The Weekend, aka Abel Tesfaye,delivered the news alongside some in-depth look into the process of creation of the legendary French duo:
“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.”
If it’s anything like the trio’s recent collaboration “Starboy,” which served as the epicenter of the Weeknd’s yet to be released studio album, there’s no doubt it’s a surefire crossover anthem in the making. Furthermore, the collaboration will be featured on The Weeknd’s upcoming 18-track album, which drops November 25th.
As of now, it is unclear if the second single with Daft Punk will arrive earlier in order to generate even more hype. Considering the massive success of “Starboy”, which amassed a total of 17 million streams in its first weekend, the chances are pretty high.
