The Weeknd Is Working With Daft Punk

Studio sessions are already under way...

The Weeknd and Daft Punk are working on new material in the studio.

The news was broken by an executive from Republic Records, taking part in a "hitmakers roundtable" hosted by Billboard last month.

Executive VP and head of urban A&R Wendy Goldstein was asked who she would like to see collaborate, replying: "Well actually, 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. This is the first time I’ve been involved with an artist who’s going to go and work with them."

Check out the clip below. Funnily enough, The Weeknd recently posted a cryptic image of Daft Punk figurines on his Facebook channel… catch that image after the jump.
