Jamiroquai shares his comeback track, “Automaton” and new vid online

PanARMENIAN.Net - Jamiroquai has shared his comeback track – ‘Automaton’ and a new video online, NME said.

The song is the title track for the band’s forthcoming new album, their first since 2010’s ‘Rock Dust Light Star’. You can view the video, which was directed by Charlie Lightening who has previously worked with Arcade Fire and Bjork, below.

“The inspiration for ‘Automaton’ is in recognition of the rise of artificial intelligence and technology in our world today 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,” says frontman Jay Kay of the new record, which is out on March 31.

Earlier this month, the London band posted a teaser for the new album with the accompanying caption “Coming to a planet near you”.

The band have also announced a one-off date at London’s Roundhouse venue on the day the album is released.
