Jamiroquai announce new album Automaton, first tour in six years

It's virtual insanity how long it's been since we've seen Jay Kay and the gang


Good news, Napoleon Dynamite: Global electronic funk sensation Jamiroquai are back.

This summer, Jay Kay’s pioneers of “future funk” will follow up their 2010 album, Rock Dust Light Star, with their eighth record to date: Automation. No word on a release date, but the outfit teased their new sound below on Facebook.

Even better, the British hitmakers are going to support the album by headlining a number of festivals all across the world, from Japan and South Korea in May to the Netherlands and the Czech Republic in July.

Sadly, there’s no North American dates on the itinerary, though it would certainly behoove festivals over here to book them. Seeing their dance moves at an outdoor festival is exactly what this season needs.

Anyways, take a look below and plan an international vacay why don’t ya.
