Canadian R&B singer The Weeknd (aka Abel Tesfaye) has released his highly anticipated third album, Starboy, featuring Kendrick Lamar, Lana Del Rey, and Future.

Besides the Daft Punk-assisted title track and "I Feel It Coming," the record also includes production from Cashmere Cat (who previously collaborated with the Toronto native on "Wild Love"), Diplo, and Metro Boomin.

In a recent interview with VMAN, Tesfaye said the album was inspired by artists like The Smiths, Bad Brains, Talking Heads, Prince, and DeBarge, and "Secrets" samples both Tear for Fear's "Pale Shelter" and The New Romantics' "Talking in Your Sleep."
