The Weeknd and Daft Punk reported to be working together
The Weeknd is reportedly working with Daft Punk on new music. It was Wendy Goldstein, an executive from Republic Records (the label The Weeknd is signed to) who confirmed the news during a “hitmakers roundtable” hosted by Billboard in July.
“We have a session coming up in two days with The Weeknd and Daft Punk, and I’ve always been a massive Daft Punk fan,” she said. “This is the first time I’ve been involved with an artist who’s going to go and work with them.”
Whether this new music is for The Weeknd’s new album, or potentially a new Daft Punk album nobody knows yet. But the french duo haven’t released any new music officially since their 2013 ‘Random Access Memories’ so whatever it is, would be welcome.
