The Weeknd announced a second Daft Punk collaboration earlier this month, and now the Canadian has dropped ‘I Feel It Coming’ ahead of his forthcoming album’s release next week, on Friday 25th November. You can listen to the track below.
As well as revealing ‘I Feel It Coming’, The Weeknd, real name Abęl Makkonen Tesfaye, also shared the tracklist for ‘Starboy’ on Twitter, which shows the album is set to feature further collaborations, with Kendrick Lamar, Lana Del Rey and Future all starring. You can see that tweet underneath the stream.
News of The Weeknd being in the studio with Daft Punk first came in August when the Canadian posted a picture of two Daft Punk figurines sat on top of a pair of speakers. ‘Starboy’, the first track from the collaboration, subsequently followed in September.
Kygo also dropped a remix of Daft Punk and The Weeknd’s ‘Starboy’ earlier this month (November). It was the second time Kygo has reworked The Weeknd’s material, after turning in a remix of ‘Often’ last year from his 2015 album, ‘Beauty Behind The Madness’.
