It’s been quite a while since Jamiroquai released new music — seven years, in fact. But the funk/jazz/disco/pop outfit headed by Jay Kay will release a new album, Automaton, on March 31.
In advance of the record, the first from the group since 2010’s Rock Dust Light Star, a stylish, futuristic video was released for the single “Automaton.” It’s really quite a trip:

Musically, it’s a bit different in feel from some of the band’s previous output — specifically how electronic it sounds. Remember, Jamiroquai made a big impact on North America back in 1997 with the breakout single and visionary video for “Virtual Insanity,” but for the most part subsequent releases have fallen on significantly less ears stateside.
Will that be an indication that Jay Kay and his colleagues are venturing into new territory with the upcoming record? Time will tell.
