Automaton

Automaton is the eighth studio album by Jamiroquai and is due for release in early 2017.

The album name was 'leaked' by a listing at amazon.fr in mid-January 2017. Following unconfirmed track listings floating around in mid January 2017 Jamiroquai social media channels posted a confirmed track list, album name, artwork and release date announcement on 26 January.

Jay Kay explains, "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."
