The Weeknd has released his new album ‘Starboy’ today – stream it here.

‘Starboy’ is Canadian singer Abel Tesfaye’s third studio album. It follows 2015’s ‘Beauty Behind The Madness’, his 2013 debut ‘Kiss Land’ and the R&B star’s 2012 ‘Trilogy’ of mixtapes.

The record also features collaborations with Daft Punk, Future and Kendrick Lamar. Tesfaye recently described the latter as a “genius” in an interview on Beats 1.

“It wasn’t just a random Kendrick Lamar verse, it was something special because again, I don’t like to say this all the time, but we’ve known each other for a while and it’s crazy how we started connecting on this record,” he told Zane Lowe.

Last week, The Weeknd unveiled two new ‘Starboy’ tracks including the Daft Punk-produced ‘I Feel It Coming’.

Speaking about working with the French duo in a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, he said: “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 was revealed earlier this month that the album’s title is a tribute to the late David Bowie. Confirming that the reference is deliberate, The Weeknd said: “I just love Bowie, I think he’s the ultimate inventor.”
