The British band return with their first new album in seven years
Jamiroquai, the London-based band best known for their single “Virtual Insanity” (and its iconic music video) released their last album Rock Dust Light Star in 2010. They return this year with Automaton, out March 31 on Virgin EMI. Watch the Charlie Lightening-directed video for the title track below. They recently announced a tour; scroll down to see the dates. Of the album, Jay Kay—who co-produced the LP with keyboardist Matt Johnson—said in a press release: The inspiration for Automaton is in recognition of the rise of artificial intelligence and technology in our world today and how we as humans are beginning to forget the more pleasant, simple and eloquent things in life and in our environment including our relationship with one another as human beings.
