Recorded just before the death of Phife Dawg in March, We Got It From Here, Thank You For Your Service will be A Tribe Called Quest’s first album in 18 years.

In a recent New York Times profile about the group, additional details have emerged about the guests who figure prominently on the group’s sixth studio album – including all four original members plus André 3000, Kendrick Lamar, Elton John, Jack White and Busta Rhymes.

Q-Tip noted of the experience, “I hadn’t seen Phife that happy since we were kids,” despite his declining health and having to endure daily dialysis for his worsening kidney failure brought on by his diabetes during the recording process.

We Got It From Here, Thank You For Your Service is out on November 11.
