New Jamiroquai album ‘Automaton’ - an analysis
Jamiroquai teased their eighth studio album in January 2017 with a short clip of the 'Automaton’ video, driving fans virtually insane with anticipation...
The album’s title track dropped later in the month. The music video show’s Jay Kay’s headgear reach new levels as the star dons a light-up helmet and dances around an underground tunnel.
The second single to be released was ‘Cloud 9’ in February. Spanish actress Monica Cruz (sister of Penélope Cruz) stars in the video, which also sees Jay Kay - a motoring fanatic - driving a Ferrari along the beach.
Finally, ‘Superfresh’ was released as the third single. Due to his back trouble, the video doesn’t feature any new footage of Jay Kay. Instead, it focuses on a female dancer intercut with clips from the ‘Automaton’ video.
The full album dropped in March to positive reviews. It reached number four in the UK and charted well in Europe too.
