Jamiroquai's New Album Is Called 'Rock Dust Light Star'
We're delighted to announce that Jamiroquai’s new album ‘Rock Dust Light Star’ is to be released by Mercury Records in November 2010!
It’s the 7th Jamiroquai studio album and the first in 5 years.
We think at a time when many acts are producing electronic, disco influenced tracks, with ‘Rock Dust Light Star’ Jamiroquai has moved on and reverted to a more organic, live sound. The shift really helped revitalise the band who ended up producing a superb album - even if we do say so ourselves! We hope you all agree as you get to hear it.
Jay says, "Everything on the record is live .It’s a real band record. The last, album – fantastic – but the whole thing became a little sterile. This time we’ve captured the flow of our live performances’.
The album has been recorded mainly at Jay’s home studio in Buckinghamshire, and also at legendary Hook End Manor in Oxfordshire and Karma Studios in Thailand. The album is entirely written by Jay Kay and the band, and produced by Jay alongside first time collaborators Charlie Russell and Brad Spence.
The first taster of the album will be the rattling groove of ‘White Knuckle Ride’, available only on strictly limited edition vinyl prior to the album. It’s a hi-octane retrospective on Jay’s career experiences - a cautionary tale equally applicable to anyone’s life in these pressure cooker times. This will be followed by ‘Blue Skies’ in November, an epic, blissful, sun-kissed Californian mid tempo song with lush string arrangements and perhaps Jay’s most emotive vocal to date - pure class.
