Grammy winner The Weeknd has announced details of his brand new album, titled Starboy, which will follow just 15 months after the commercial success of his breakout record Beauty Behind the Madness.

Pitchfork reported on Thursday that Starboy, technically the singer-songwriter’s third studio album but his sixth if you include his string of mixtapes, will be released on November 25th via XO and Republic.

The 26 year old Canadian superstar, whose real name is Abel Tesfaye, also made available the title track from the new album. ‘Starboy’ is a moody club number made in conjunction with none other than Daft Punk, and is currently available on Apple Music and Spotify.

The day before, Tesfaye had surprised his fans by revealing a brand new haircut via his Instagram page. Shearing off his iconic, sky-high dreadlocks that has made him so distinctive over the last year, the artwork for the new record shows him wearing a cross, a leather jacket and a new ‘do that, according to a source telling Us Weekly, fits in with his new sound.

“He cut his hair for the new album, to give it a fresher look to match the feel of the album,” the source reveals. “It was a deliberate decision like a lot of artists do. New album, new look. He has been trying not to be photographed to unveil it all in a very deliberate rollout.”

Tesfaye won two Grammys back in February this year in the wake of his massive success with Beauty Behind the Madness. Supported by two Billboard Hot 100 chart-toppers – ‘The Hills’ and ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ – it also topped the albums chart and has sold 1.5 million copies around the world.
