Buckle up, space cowboys. British act, Jamiroquai, have returned to the music scene with their eighth studio album, Automaton. Are you ready for this? We sure weren’t.
Released less than a week ago via Virgin EMI Records, Automaton is a brilliant blend of acid funk energy, retro-futuristic animation, and dynamic noise. Flagship single, Automaton, drives the soul of the album, fusing together elements of disco, nu jazz, and avant-garde electronica.
While the mechanics of it aren’t necessarily the norm for the London-based group, we’re certainly impressed. It’s as if Jamiroquai and Daft Punk traded musical styles for their late albums. And, to be frank, we’re completely fine with that.
If one thing is true, it’s that Automaton will be top contender for song of the year, let alone the entire LP competing for album of the year. What a way to dive into to 2017!
See what Jamiroquai had to say about the entire album:
“Thanks for all your support and sharing your excitement about our new album Automaton, it’s finally here,” says Jamiroquai. “We’re really happy with these tracks and can’t wait to play it live for you, so grab your copy, turn it up and thanks for listening.”
