"there will be another album along, and it won't be a huge gap"! sounds good, would be this time next year at earlest, but with rock dust light star around time will fly along :D

Another album?!?! GREAT!!! Maybe in 1 1/2 years time Jay? Blessings brother!!!

Never been more clear, Jay! Still dont know why so many songs are left out by record companies. Double albums would be great!!

New album,
Not massive gap,
Great news!!! Cheebaaaa

New album......not too long........? CHEEEEEBBBBBAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

New album, Atleast 10 more tracks recorded, not a big gap? Cheeeeebbaa!!

Jamiroquai will enter the Dutch album charts at number 1 tomorrow!

Today's midweeks:

1 JAMIROQUAI – ROCK DUST LIGHT STAR – MERCURY (100)
2 NICK & SIMON – FIER - ARTIST & COMPANY (70)
3 BON JOVI – THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION – ISLAND (69)
4 CARO EMERALD – DELETED SCENES – GRANDMONO (49)
5 KINGS OF LEON – COME AROUND SUNDOWN – RCA (44)

Good news! They definitely should be more proactive in the creative aspect, especially after a 5-year hiatus. Alos, glad to see that Dutch chart, Jim. It will be interesting to see how RDLS fares outside of the UK.

Correction: *Also*

Very pleased to hear it [another album]!!! :)

Interesting to hear Jay say he simply just can not sing some early trax. I'm sure they have a list but I would love to see a list of songs that he cant sing and songs he refuses to sing.

Do you know where you're coming from....can't sing anyore?

He can't sing the earlier stuff 'cos he's roughed up his vocal cords with all those fags, naughty boy. Give 'em up and give your voice a chance to recover before the next album sonny!
By the way, the radio 2 concert was great!

I thought it was pretty obvious that Jay can no longer hit the high notes he used to hit so brilliantly on the earlier material. Even on songs like Space Cowboy and Virtual Insanity which are classics they still play, Jay changes they key to suit his more roughed up voice of today. All the fags and booze have obviously taken their toll. He does still however, sound terrific live, despite not having the higher range anymore.

Yes he has a hard time hitting certain notes in some songs but like you say he still sings them...Sapce Cowboy & Virtual Insanity. I'm wondering which songs he can't sing at all as he mentiones in the interview so they never get played. Then I'm curious what songs they don't play because he does not like them like he also says in the interview.
