Welcome to Nate Williams - additional tour musician

As Jamiroquai move from smaller rehearsals to now full production rehearsals ahead of the upcoming tour dates Jamiroquai have announced that Nate Williams will be joining the band on both keyboards and guitars.  Nate has been tweeting for a while some photos and more about the rehearsals and it's good to get some public acknowledgement from the band about his involvement.

In addition to Nate there's also Howard Whiddett - who is introduced as the bands 'Ableton live whiz' - where Ableton is music software that does all sorts of clever stuff (read their website for more information!).

BBC Radio 2 have chosen Automaton to be their 'Album of the Week' from 25 March.  Hopefully this means some album tracks will get played during the week ahead of it's release.  To see when BBC Radio 1 or 2 have played Jamiroquai music you can check out the Radio music 'bots' on Twitter (which are 'mostly' accurate!).

Cloud 9 is still on the stations 'A' playlist - and this is now four weeks running.

Thousands more shops celebrate the day around the globe in what’s become one of the biggest annual events on the music calendar."

According to the UK FAQ releases are only available through participating shops from the 22 April and cannot be reserved in advance or ordered online until one week after the event (subject to availability).
