During an interview with The Wallstreet Journal, The Weeknd’s Abél Makonnen Tesfaye admitted he made two tracks with Daft Punk for his forthcoming album, ‘Starboy’, and that the second would be revealed when the album drops later this month.
“The remarkably spontaneous sessions yielded two songs on the album,” the Weeknd explained in a profile piece with The Wall Street Journal.
Tesfaye also detailed what it’s like to work with Daft Punk and what their studio was like. “Their studio is like a spaceship, there’s a lot of gear,” he told the WSJ, “but the way they make music, the way they explain it, is very cinematic. It’s like they’re reading a page out of a novel: ‘We want to make sure that at the end, it feels like the sun’s coming up, and maybe there’s a car chase.’ They can get technical, but it was interesting how they visualize making music.”
