The band's first studio album in five years and eighth in total is due this March! They're also embarking on a world tour this year.

Jamiroquai are one of my favourite acts of the 1996-2001 era so I'm interested in this.

It's quite disjointed, a bit Daft Punk but then classic Jamiroquai when that disco boogie beat kicks in! Melody reminds me of You Keep Me Hanging On in parts.

Love it
Many miles many roads I have traveled
Fallen down on the way
Many hearts many years have unraveled
Leading up to today

Quite interesting return but I need to listen to it a couple of times more.

It is disjointed but does have some really good parts overall a good comeback and much more interesting than most of the stuff in the charts at the moment

I keep going back to watching the video, i feel like i'm being hypnotised by the music.

There's a strong Daft Punk influence which ticks all the right boxes for me, as i love Daft Punk. I also want my very own automaton helmet. :lol:

LOL at one of the comments on YouTube "i'm a tomato" :lol:

Another single from Jamiroquai is released today, called Cloud 9. It's a great song.

I thought that maybe Automaton was a fluke as I didn't really liked anything by them before. But now I hear Cloud 9 an I am in love with it. When you say it is similar to their older material, maybe I have to check it out.

Automaton is so 80s I thought I was hearing Duran Duran. Cloud 9 is glorious!

I CAN'T BELIEVE I COMPLETELY MISSED BOTH THIS NEWS AND THIS TOPIC :o :o :o

Jamiroquai is one of my all-time favourite acts, and the High Times compilation is one of the first CDs I ever bought for myself. Looking forward to this album! In a way it's a blessing I only found out now because I have to wait for less than a month :lol:

Listening to the songs, Automaton is a bit weird like people have said, but I do like it. Cloud 9, though... is pure magic. Love that song! On repeat.

That's seven years, surely? 6,5 if you wanna get down to the details.

Yes you're right. I was looking at the American release date. Can't believe it's that long!
