High Times: Singles 1992-2006 artwork has revealed the cover artwork to "High Times: Singles 1992-2006".  The following press release has also been issued:

Singles compilation 'High Times - Singles 1992 – 2006' released on November 13th Brand New Single, "Runaway" released on November 6th on Sony BMGJamiroquai are set to release a brand new single, entitled 'Runaway', on November 6th. It is the lead single taken from their new album 'High Times – Singles 1992 - 2006', a singles collection which contains 16 huge hits from Jamiroquai's extraordinary career to date, plus two new tracks; it will be released through Sony BMG on November 13th. A slice of classic Jamiroquai, with it's shimmering disco strings and infectious bass line, 'Runaway' is the first of two brand new tracks on this first ever Jamiroquai hits compilation – the second track being the hard edged kinky funk of "Radio"– further proof that Jamiroquai have still got plenty of fuel in the tank.15 years in the making, and taking in early acid jazz of Top 10 debut, Too Young To Die, and the politically conscious Emergency On Planet Earth, through to massive global hits such as Cosmic Girl and Virtual Insanity, to the shimmering disco of Little L, Canned Heat and Love Foolosophy, via the thumping No. 1 smash Deeper Underground, 'High Times – The Singles Collection' is a timely reminder of the sheer strength and depth of Jamiroquai's back catalogue. In an age when a 'Greatest Hits' album often means 4 or 5 genuine hits and an awful lot of filler, it's testament to how long the often under appreciated Jamiroquai have been at the top of their game.After 159 weeks on the UK singles chart, 232 weeks on the albums chart, more than 20 million album sales and five mammoth world tours – playing to more than 5 million people in 38 countries – and that's before you even get to the 5 MTV awards, the Grammy, the Ivor Novello Award and the well documented rock and roll lifestyle, it's fair to say that, Jay Kay, the quick stepping 37 year-old professionally known as Jamiroquai, is one of the UK's greatest musical exports of the last 20 years.A special edition of the album will also be available containing various Jamiroquai remixes, including the classic David Morales remix of Space Cowboy (which to this day is still Kiss FM's most played song of all time). A DVD of all Jamiroquai videos ever made will be simultaneously released on Sony BMG – this will feature extra tracks, hits not contained on the CD album such as 'Stillness In Time' and 'Half The Man'.As well as his latest musical venture, Jay has also taken time out to design a new clothing line for Hugo Boss called Jay Kay For Hugo, in stores this Autumn.

High Times – Singles 1992-2006 is out on Sony/BMG on November 13th.
