The Weeknd is back and stronger than ever. After announcing the new album STARBOY on Thursday (Sep. 21), the pop singer ends the night by releasing the lead single and title track. Premiered across the U.S. on iHeartRadio, the track “STARBOY” pairs the XO vocalist with French electro duo Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, bka Daft Punk.

STARBOY, a follow-up to last year’s triple-platinum Beauty Behind the Madness LP, hits stores on November 25. The 18-track album is available for pre-order now on iTunes, as the second single will be called “False Alarm.” “There are new inspirations on this album,” said the new-look 26-year-old in his VMAN cover story. “I think it’ll be the best-sounding album I’ve ever done.”
