The Weeknd surprised fans earlier today by announcing his new album, Starboy, which will be released November 25th.

Along with the announcement of a new album, he released the album title track, featuring electronic music duo, Daft Punk!

Last month, Republic Records executive VP Wendy Goldstein revealed the collaboration and describe it as a dream come true.

In an interview with Vman.com, Abel spoke about what to expect on his latest body of work, “I’ll touch on my relationship with religion a little bit and how it ties into my crazy and materialistic life. I’ll touch base on some recent experiences and past experiences that didn’t make the last album. I wrote some of these songs while recording Beauty Behind the Madness. It’s like a fictional book inspired by true events.”

He added, “there are new inspirations on this album… I think it’ll be the best-sounding album I’ve ever done”.

Maybe just as surprising as news of the album, is that his signature locks are all gone!

Starboy is the follow up to his 2015 record, Beauty Behind the Madness, which featured the singles, ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ and ‘The Hills’; the album was nominated for seven Grammys, of which he won two.
