R&B adventurer With Janelle Monáe is making her next ambitious leap next week with the release of The Electric Lady through Bad Boy/Atlantic on September 10, and now that album is available to stream in full ahead of time.

The star-studded album features high-profile cameos from Prince ("Givin Em What They Love"), Miguel ("PrimeTime"), Erykah Badu ("Q.U.E.E.N."), Solange ("The Electric Lady") and more.

The epic 19-track affair clocks in at over an hour, which kicks off with the grandly orchestral "Suite IV: Electric Overture." After that, the album focuses on more funky, soulful sounds.

Hear it all in the player embedded below; note that the entire album plays as one long track, although you can use the progress bar to skip back and forth.
