Jamiroquai are back.
The Grammy-winning electronic soul funk legends return with ‘Automaton’ and a headline show at the Roundhouse on 31 March, the day of the album release. The London performance takes place three days after their first live gig in six years, at Pleyel in Paris.
Jamiroquai will also be headlining several international festivals over the summer in support of their eighth studio album.
The LP, written and produced by Jamiroquai mastermind Jay Kay and keyboard player Matt Johnson, has been preceded by the title track.
“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,” says Jay Kay, who founded the band in 1992.
Since releasing their debut ‘Emergency on Planet Earth’, Jamiroquai have had three UK #1 albums, sold over 26 million units worldwide, and set the Guinness World Record for best-selling funk album of all time.
