After dominating much of 2013 with hits “Get Lucky,” “Blurred Lines,” and “Happy,” Pharrell is back with his first solo album in eight years. And now you can stream it one week early.

In the spirit of those smash singles, G I R L is packed with upbeat funk, disco, and R&B, with Pharrell’s falsetto gliding over nearly every track. Its retro, opulent sound and Prince-inspired grooves are also reminiscent of last year’s The 20/20 Experience, the best-selling album of 2013 (Timberlake also appears on the album, in addition to Miley Cyrus, Daft Punk, JoJo, and Alicia Keys), so we’ll see whether Pharrell can keep his streak going in 2014.

Stream the album in full on iTunes Radio.
