It’s been three-and-a-half years since Chromeo released Business Casualthe Canadian duo’s best-selling album yet and a top five album on Billboard‘s Dance/Electronic Albums chart. After delighting audiences with their danceable approach to electrofunk, the group laid low for a few years before returning with multiple new songs purported to be on Chromeo’s fourth LP, White Women.

Now, the album is finally here, streaming in full a week in advance of its worldwide release next week on iTunes Radio.

The 12-song album includes the duo dabbling in guest spots, with Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend for the aptly named “Ezra’s Interlude,” Solange and Toro y Moi.

The new record also continues Chromeo’s time-tested combination of providing a silly, carefree escape to ’80s-styled disco while remaining in high regard among audiences. In an interview at Coachella last month with Radio.com, singer Dave 1 chalked this up to having the correct focus when it comes to their music.

“You need to aim just right, otherwise you’re Lonely Island or…you’re just like pretentious disco stuff,” he said. “It’s gotta be right in the middle and that’s why we work hard on our songs, hard on our craft.”

White Women is out May 12.
