Jamiroquai are back! #Automaton is the #TuneOfTheWeek

automaton_jamiroquai_1

Feel like a man, who fell to Earth
That this is not where I belong
They rule my life from a metal box, that’s windowless

And then wondering: “Am I the new intelligence?”

Those are some lyrics for the comeback song by Jamiroquai. Jay Kay and his company are back with this new groove. It’s electronic, it’s got a funk feel, it goes disco on the chorus but you can also go breakdancing if you want to! A sticky electronica rhythm will lead you through this whole song. That’s what Jamiroquai are all about, they keep tranforming the groove and put you in the mood, with those lyrics and that beat.

All that because we’ve been with J since the very beggining with ‘When You Gonna Learn’. Get the info on this great comeback below, from the official release:

27th January 2017: Grammy award winning global electronic soul funk superstars, Jamiroquai, announce their return with their eight studio album, ‘Automaton’. Written and self- produced by Jay Kay and Jamiroquai keyboard-maestro Matt Johnson , ‘Automaton’ will be available for release on 31st March via Virgin EMI.

Causing a swarm of excitement from fans across the globe, after the release of ‘Automaton Transmission 001’ last Monday, Jamiroquai release the full length video for the album’s title track, available to watch here. A slice of neo-noir science fiction, the video was directed by Charlie Lightening (Arcade Fire, Bjork) with creative direction from front man Jay Kay. This is the latest visual to be released from the band, who were responsible for such game-changing videos as ‘Canned Heat’, ‘Little L’ & four-time MTV Video Music Award winner ‘Virtual Insanity’.

On ‘Automaton’ Jay Kay comments, 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. “
