After announcing plans to keep their collaborative streak alive last month, A Tribe Called Quest's Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Adrian Younge have delivered their debut LP The Midnight Hour, and you can hear the entire thing right now.

Arriving today through Linear Labs, the 20-track effort is described as "a soul/jazz/hip-hop album which continues the conversations started by yesterday's jazz and funk pioneers." 

Not only are Muhammad and Younge joined by a full orchestra and jazz rhythm section, but also a star-studded list of contributors. Names popping up in the list of features include Raphael Saadiq, Laetitia Sadier, Questlove, Bilal, Ladybug Mecca of Digable Planets, Marsha Ambrosius, Eryn Allen Kane, Karolina, CeeLo Green and more.

Album track "Questions" may sound very familiar to fans of Kendrick Lamar, with the rapper having initially sampled the track on his 2016 release untitled unmastered.
