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. ”
