New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
The Weeknd's "Starboy
" is here. After months of promotion, which included four singles, SNL & AMA performances, & a short film called "M A N I A," The Weeknd's highly anticipated third studio album, Starboy, has officially arrived on iTunes.
"There are new inspirations on this album," he said of the follow-up to last year's Beauty Behind the Madness. "The production feels aggressive but still sexy. The Smiths, Bad Brains, Talking Heads, Prince, and DeBarge play roles. We wrote it all in Los Angeles. I think it'll be the best-sounding album I've ever done. It's hard to label the sound because, when I first came out, nobody would label it R&B. I just want to keep pushing the envelope without it feeling forced."
Laced with 18 tracks in total, the follow up to last year's Beauty Behind The Madness
features guest appearances from Daft Punk
twice, Kendrick Lamar
("All I Know", and Lana Del Ray for a "Stargirl interlude". Meanwhile, production is being handled by the likes of Cashmere Cat, Benny Blanco, Draft Punk, Jake One, Frank Dukes, Ben Billions, Mano, and more.
Having already heard singles "Starboy," "False Alarm," "Monster Party" & "I Feel It Coming
" featuring Daft Punk, fans can now stream the entire album via Apple Music
