Jamiroquai – Automaton
8 April 2017 New Releases
Automaton is the eighth studio album by English funk and acid jazz band Jamiroquai. It is the band’s first album in seven years, following Rock Dust Light Star (2010).
Frontman Jay Kay wrote and self-produced the record alongside keyboardist Matt Johnson. “The inspiration for Automaton is in recognition of the rise of artificial intelligence and technology in our world today,” Kay noted in a press release, “and how we as humans are beginning to forget the more pleasant, simple and eloquent things in life and in our environment including our relationship with one another as human beings.”
