The Weeknd And Daft Punk Are Working Together

The cat’s out the bag.

News from camp Daft Punk is few and far between, but in a recent interview, it’s been discovered that the pair have been working with The Weeknd

In a video filmed for Billboard magazine, Wendy Goldstein, who works for Republic Records, let slip: “we have a session coming up in two days with the Weeknd and Daft Punk”.

The Weeknd peppered rumours by uploading a Facebook post of two robots sitting on a speaker. A blatant finger in the right direction? We think so.

The Weeknd fits the vague mould of Daft Punk’s eclectic mix of collaborators - pop with distinctly independent credentials - and with their near total silence since 2013’s Random Access Memories, it might not be too long until we’re treated to new material.
