The Weeknd tapped two of music’s hottest rappers and a familiar crooner for his new album.
The dark R&B singer shared the tracklist for his third record, Starboy, on Thursday, which features Kendrick Lamar, Future, and singer Lana Del Rey. The 18-track effort surpasses the length of his breakout album, last year’s Beauty Behind the Madness (14 songs), and his major-label debut Kiss Land (only 10).
“Sidewalks” marks the first time Lamar and The Weeknd have collaborated on an album together. On Future’s album EVOL, The Weeknd and the Atlanta MC teamed up for the gloomy celebration that is “Low Life.” Lana Del Rey appeared on Beauty for “Prisoner,” a conciliatory anthem.
Daft Punk’s participation is limited to two songs — the title track “Starboy” and “I Feel It Coming,” which will be released Thursday night along with “Party Monster.”
Starboy will be released Nov. 25. See the full tracklist below.
