The Weeknd recently released the title track from his forthcoming Starboy LP.

Starboy will be the follow-up to 2015’s Beauty Behind The Madness album which spawned his hit singles “Earned It,” “The Hills,” and “Can’t Feel My Face.”

The 42nd season of Saturday Night Live featuring The Weeknd will air October 1 on NBC.
