A Funk Odyssey

Jamiroquai's fifth studio album was released in the UK on 3 September 2001. As with most Jamiroquai releases, Japan got hold of the album a week earlier (29 August) together with "Do It Like We Used To Do" and "Deeper Underground" as bonus tracks.

All versions of the album (other than the Japanese release) also include as a hidden track "So Good To Feel Real", a funky jam recorded just before the album had to be delivered to the record company. The track on the album, which fades out after a couple of minutes was recorded in a single take and was never completed.

A Funk Odyssey is the first Jamiroquai album to be produced by Rick Pope.
