With The Idol’s Cannes debut soon upon us, The Weeknd has shared a new Future-featuring track from the HBO original series. An official “Double Fantasy” video arrived in tandem.

The single, which shares a title with the classic John Lennon and Yoko Ono album from 1980, was performed during the first weekend of Coachella during Metro Boomin’s set. The Heroes & Villains superproducer shared his excitement for the official streaming release on Thursday on Instagram, sharing a photo of himself alongside legend and fellow “Double Fantasy” contributor Mike Dean:

This is far from the first time The Weeknd and Future have partnered up; their most recent collab, “Comin Out Strong,” arrived in 2017 as part of Future’s Hndrxx album.

Last week, The Idol’s Cannes debut was officially announced. As we reported, it will make its worldwide premiere at the festival as part of the out-of-competition assortment of titles. Shortly after news of the Cannes unveiling, HBO shared another teaser trailer for the project, which was co-created by Abel Tesfaye with Sam Levinson (Euphoria) and Reza Fahim.

In the series, which is slated to hit HBO on June 4, Abel plays a sketchy-seeming “nightclub impresario” named Tedros. Teasers for the show have been heavy on the cult-like talk and imagery, all while giving fans glimpses at Tedros’ relationship with Lily-Rose Depp’s character Jocelyn.

Additional confirmed cast members include Troye Sivan, Mike Dean, Moses Sumney, Rachel Sennott, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Dan Levy, Hart New, Suzanna Son, and more.
