Funk Band Jamiroquai Release their First Single in Seven Years
The Buffalo man and the gang are back and the music sounds like it might just be worth the 2342 day wait.
Jay Kay and his eight man strong hit factory Jamiroquai are back after a long, quiet, and much frowned upon seven year absence. On January 17th they teased fans with a new album called Automaton by posting a cryptic video with an ear provoking sound snippet at the end of it. It also showed Jay Kay sporting new headgear straight out of a sci-fi movie. On the 27th they finally released the full video of the title single and it sounds like the album will be a true evolution of their funk sounds, keeping that timeless feel they’re famous for, while somehow managing to sound very 2017.They also announced a ten concert tour on their official website kicking off in Paris, London, and Tokyo with more dates to be announced. The album is scheduled for a March 31st release on Virgin EMI. Jamiroquai’s comeback is regarded by many as the biggest musical icon return since Daft Punk’s 2013 re-emergence after a similarly lengthy break. It seems like no one can wait to get their hands on the album and it’s completely understandable - a seven year silence from a band with millions of fans and dozens of hits is simply too cruel.
