    The Weeknd and Daft Punk's track "Starboy" was released a couple of days ago. Now we have the video to bathe our eyes in. Grant Singer, a preferred director of Abel Tesfaye returns to film Tesfaye destroying a design heavy, monied looking apartment with a lightsaber-esque glowing cross. If that's not enough to get your juices flowing, the star then climbs into a sporty little car and cruises through the night with a wild beast in the passenger seat. It's pretty much better than great. Feast your eyes on the video, below.

    "Starboy" is the title track from The Weeknd's upcoming album, to be released on November 25th. It's been little more than a year since The Weeknd's last album, the breakout Beauty Behind The Madness. The album, although technically The Weeknd's second studio LP, moved away from the production values of previous mixtapes and his debut, and into a new, more polished tone.

    Speaking earlier this month, Tesfaye said "There are new inspirations on this album. The production feels aggressive but still sexy. The Smiths, Bad Brains, Talking Heads, Prince, and DeBarge play roles. We wrote it all in Los Angeles. I think it'll be the best-sounding album I've ever done. It's hard to label the sound because, when I first came out, nobody would label it R&B. I just want to keep pushing the envelope without it feeling forced."
