On Wednesday (Sept. 21), The Weeknd revealed the title and artwork of his upcoming and highly anticipated sophomore album, Starboy. He kept the hype going overnight by releasing the album's title track, which features dance legends Daft Punk.

The Weeknd Shares Upcoming Album Title & Cover Art, Flaunts New Haircut

The chart-topping artist's new haircut (as seen on the album cover) isn't the only thing that's changed, though. The album will likely diverge from the sound of his breakthrough Beauty Behind the Madness album, considering he has already dipped his toes into more electronic production. 

Earlier this month, the collaborative track "Wild Love" arrived, which saw The Weeknd working with Cashmere Cat and Francis and the Lights.

According to iTunes, the album will have 18 tracks, with an expected release date of Nov. 25. "False Alarm" is the only other song title listed.
