Having announced the release of their first album in seven years, Automation, Jamiroquai have shared new single 'Cloud 9' from the album.
The new track features the kind of disco-laden funk that we've come to expect from the British band and gives a good indication of how their album will shape up.
In a press release, lead singer Jay Kay said: “Cloud 9 is a song that's written in the style that I hope people know us for and are familiar with. It's a song that if anyone that has been jilted and yet found love somewhere else will no doubt relate to. Can't wait for you to hear it - get in the car stick it on the radio and just drive.”
Automaton comes out March 31 on Virgin EMI.
Few artists – people, even – can bring out high levels of irritation and revulsion in their fellow human beings as consistently as Jason Kay. That he has managed to build a hugely successful career with such an obvious lack of charm and humility, only makes him harder to stomach.Read More

There's no point in beating around the bush here: Jay Kay has to be one of the most loathed men in pop. Put it down to a perceived smugness, that spritzer-eating grin, a penchant for posh autos, a celebrity girlfriend - anything but the music.Read More
