Abel Tesfaye has also been working with Daft Punk
The Weeknd has collaborated with Norwegian producer Cashmere Cat on new song ‘Wild Love’. Scroll below to listen.
‘Wild Love’ is the electronic musician’s new single, which also features Francis and the Lights, the Chance The Rapper collaborator and Kanye West co-signed artist.
This new song is the title track from Cashmere Cat’s upcoming debut album, which is due later this year. His last release was 2014’s ‘Wedding Bells’ EP.
‘Wild Love’ is the first music from The Weeknd since last year’s album ‘A Beauty Behind The Madness’, although he has guested on several remixes recently.
It’s also been confirmed by an executive at The Weekend’s record label, Republic, that the singer has been working with Daft Punk.
It isn’t yet clear if the track would be The Weeknd featuring on new Daft Punk music, or if the duo are producing new tracks for The Weeknd. Daft Punk have previously produced for Pharrell Williams, Kanye West and N.E.R.D.
Daft Punk haven’t done a remix since they overhauled Ami Suzuki’s single ‘All Night Long’ in 2011, having provided remixes for Gabrielle and Franz Ferdinand early in their career.
