Rock Dust Light Star confirmed track listing

Added on Friday 17 September 2010, 20:16 (UTC)

So, within a day of posting an unconfirmed track listing for the new Jamiroquai album the good people at have posted a confirmed track list.

  1. Rock Dust Light Star
  2. White Knuckle Ride
  3. Smoke and Mirrors
  4. All Good In The Hood
  5. Hurtin'
  6. Blue Skies
  7. Lifeline
  8. She's a Fast Persuader
  9. Two Completely Different Things
  10. Goodbye To My Dancer
  11. Never Gonna Be Another
  12. Hey Floyd

We now have the tracks for the UK/International (non-Japanese) release of the album.  This is very close to the Amazon list - perhaps either 'Your Window Is A Crazy Television' or 'Not The Funk' (if they are genuine track names) will be the bonus track for Japan?  Only time will tell...

Here we go!

I'm curious to listen to "She's a Fast Persuader" and "Hey Floyd"!

I'm sur that All Good In The Hood will be a very funky song with a lot of brass, groovy bass and some of break !!! ;o)
So happy to discover this tracklisting !!!

Can't wait to actually hear the new album now we have the track names! I love Blue Skies and like the other two new tracks in the forms we've heard. As for the album 12 tracks is a good length would have been good for them to reveal individual track lengths too so we know how long the album is going to be but 12 is good. RDLS should make a good opener but hard to judge off just the live performance compared to how it will sound on the record. All Good In The Hood sounds like an old-skool track, very good it sounds, even if the thought of a promo video for some sort of gangster rap track does make me cringe slightly. But I'm sure it won't be a rap track it sounds more like a nod to EOPE era to me?
Smoke and Mirrors and Lifeline are the two I'm very interested in hearing... oh and Goodbye To My dancer... fact the whole album would be nice :-)

I can't wait to hear the album in its entirety. I'm very anxious to hear 'Smoke and Mirrors', 'All Good In The Hood' sounds like it will be hot, and 'Hey Floyd.'

Who else is semi upset that Hail to the Cowboy was a fake? :P

Hurry up October!

@Liam S
I sure am! Hail To The Cowboy sounded like an amazing Jamiroquai song. I'm also disappointed at the absence of Not The Funk.

BS 2

I wait to find the true jamiroquai tune in this new album...


Thanks for this - looking forward to reading about the inspiration or motivation behind each track. How did it all come about? What inspired them? What musical direction are they going to go in future? any musical/artistic influences? (Am not a music journo - just a Psychology student and trainee substance misuse worker!) Especially curious about the "Hey Floyd" track - is Jay a secret Syd Barrett fan? if so hes a man after my own heart! (Check out INTERSTELLAR OVERDRIVE - early pink floyd - Syd Barrett - a genius ) Just need a 60's style "Happening" now! Fabulous news about the Amsterdam venue - it reminds me of Wiltons Music Hall in London. No huge arenas! spot on! thanks guys! keep it counterculture - underground! Cant make Amsterdam, but am looking forward to hearing the new stuff in London on 20th.. Take care everyone

time is really going slow, i want it to be november already

Very, very interesting titles. I like "All Good in the Hood" cuz I use that expression all the time, lol.

The last several track titles are very different from your typical Jamiroquai titles, which makes me very curious as to how they will sound. After hearing RDLS, WKR, an BS, and how different they are from one another, I honestly have no idea what to expect from the rest of the tracks. I hope bits & pieces are revealed before November.

I will add that BS has begun to grow on me... Lately I find myself singing/humming it to myself - in fact, that is happening as we speak - so it's become part of my "internal playlist".

Now THAT'S more like it!!!

@ spacegirl, time won't wait for you, so do all the things you wanted to. The release date will come it, has no choice because time can only move one way, and that's forwards. Don't wish your life away, enjoy today and tomorrow will come, enjoy that then...

Where can I listen to Hail to the Cowboy?

@ Otis P Jivefunk

Thank u for your comment, because I can apply that to my current situation, so I really needed to read that. Thanks again. :-)

Glad to help :)

Thanks for posting David! RHCP's "Throw Away Your Television" is one of my favourite songs of all time. I wonder whether "Your Window Is A Crazy Television" is along similar lines.

Just noticed that have updated their listing, but have the last two tracks the other way around, and also list a track 13, That's Not The Funk I Want which is understood to be the Japanese only bonus track.
