French electronic duo Cassius have apparently found their way out of the jungle to announce details of their first full-length album in 10 years, Ibifornia.

Pharrell Williams, who previously featured on “Eye Water” from the pair’s 2006 album, 15 Again, appears with Cat Power on Ibifornia track “Go Up,” while Ryan Tedder, Jaw, Portugal. The Man’s John Gourley, and the Bestie Boys’ Mike D are also set to make guest appearances.

Cassius have been active since 1988, and their 2002 single “The Sound of Violence” peaked at #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart. Jay Z and Kayne West also heavily sampled Cassius’ “I <3 U So” on their 2011 Watch the Throne track “Why I Love You.”

Listen to the Pharrell-assisted “Go Up” in the video below. Ibifornia is out June 24.
