Over recent weeks a number of possible track names from the new album have been posted online after they appeared on a music performing rights database. Most of the songs are written by Jay and keyboard player (and producer) Matt Johnson.
Well, it now seems that have some pretty reasonable confirmation that these are genuine and we also have an album title - Automaton.
Amazon.fr is listing a vinyl release of a Jamiroquai album with this name for release on 31 March 2017.
The only other information of interest is that the record label is listed as Virgin.
This all sounds like an album release announcement is imminent. Just after Christmas an instagram photo and comment said that Jay played the album and showed two music videos to some friends.
Things are happening, real soon...
Of course, none of this information is guaranteed but it sure is looking promising.
Thanks as always to Brent at the Jamiroquai Minute and all the folk at jamirotalk.net for keeping things alive during these (very long and very quiet) times...
Update 16 Jan 18:10 GMT: The album name looks to be confirmed as the band website, Facebook and YouTube channels have just put online a short 20 second 'teaser' video clip called "#AUTOMATON TRANSMISSION 001".
