After announcing the name and artwork for his album 'Starboy' earlier today, The Weeknd has gone ahead and dropped the collaboration that everyone has been waiting for.

Last month, news surfaced about the pop star spending time in the studio with none other than Daft Punk, an unprecedented collaboration that had fans equally excited and confused.

No matter what your opinion may be on the pairing, it's exciting to know that Daft Punk are working and inching closer to releasing new material, perhaps next time, on their own accord.

Meanwhile, fans will have to get familiar with The Weeknd's title single, which features the obvious, lighthearted and undeniably Daft Punk signature vocoder tones behind the singer's chorus croons.

The Weeknd's third studio album is set to arrive on November 25.

Hear a preview of 'Starboy' below.
