New album coming later this year?

Facebook message from Derrick McKenzie

If you keep an eye on the facebook and twitter accounts of some of the bandmembers there's often little pieces of information shared that get us excited about new music from the band.  There's been a few posts recently including one from Derrick McKenzie (drums) on Facebook "Who else is looking forward to the new Jamiroquai album?" and also a message from Paul Turner (bass) on Twitter where he said the album is currently being mixed and will be out in the winter.

Paul also wrote a few weeks ago that he expects there to be a few promo only dates in 2016 and a full tour next year.

Stay tuned...

(Very) old Jamiroquai session recordings

Stuart Zender - Zendertapes

Original Jamiroquai bass player (until 1998) Stuart Zender has just launched a new website and as a treat for Jamiroquai fans he is going to be putting online some old Jamiroquai session demo tape recordings.

The first 'Zendertape' is for the track Scam - from Jamiroquai's second album The Return of The Space Cowboy.

Stuart says...

Hearing these tapes conjures such fond memories of a time when music and the creative process was so free and uninhibited.

To listen to this great bit of old school Jamiroquai and to read a little more then please head over to the zendermusic.com website.

Thanks to Brent Armstrong for giving me the heads up on this news.  To stay in touch with all sorts of Jamiroquai news (in addition to funkin.com of course ;) please have a look at the Jamiroquai Subreddit which he looks after.

Sola and Derrick back in the studio

Things seem to have been quiet in the world of Jamiroquai for what seems like an eternity but we do get little pieces of information every now and then (normally from band member twitter and/or facebook pages) and here's a great example.  On Sunday percussionist Sola Akinbola posted a photo on Facebook of a recording studio (Air Studios in London) and the caption "The return of the SpaceCowboy grooving at Air Studios."

A little later drummer Derrick McKenzie posted three photos from the studio with the caption "Recording and listening in the studio to new Jamiroquai track".

Good times are coming...

New album this year...?

So, there's a story that was in the Daily Mail newspaper this week and also reported on NME.com about Jay having to go to court because of a stalker who made him fear for his safety. That seems to be resolved now.

Good.

But... at the end of the article at NME.com it says "Jamiroquai released their latest album 'Rock Dust Light Star' in 2010. Their eighth studio album is expected this year."

Any news is good news right?  Let's hope there's at least the tiniest bit of truth in this and that the recent writing/recording sessions are going well.

Virtual... Virtual Insanity video game

I don't play many computer games (or are they called video games - I just don't know!) any more but this one has a Jamiroquai theme and I thought it would fill a little space on the site during these seemingly never ending quiet times...  

So here goes - over at gamejolt.com there's a Jamiroquai game where you get ot be Jay Kay in the Virtual Insanity video, dodging chairs and sofas!
