(Radio.com) The Weeknd (AKA Abel Tesfaye) has released new song "Live For" featuring fellow Toronto native Drake. It's the latest single from the Weeknd's forthcoming album, Kiss Land, which is scheduled to drop on September 10.

The customarily moody and atmospheric tune finds Tesfaye delivering his lyrics over acoustic guitars and orchestral swells, with Drake picking up the hook "This is the sh** that I live for" as the launching pad for his verse, which kicks in around the song's halfway point.

The pair have previously collaborated on songs like "The Zone," from the Weeknd's second mixtape, Thursday, as well as a handful of tracks on Drake's sophomore album, 2001 release Take Care, including "Crew Love" and "Practice."

The Weeknd has a long history with Drake, going back to 2011 when his second-ever live show was part of the rapper's annual OVO Festival. Rumors of a brewing feud between the two seems to have been long squashed. Check out the song and read more here.
