I've been playing around with some numerology via my mobile phone lately whether I'm at work or at home, and it seems like 7 is the lucky number! Not only is it my specific life path digit, but it's also how long Jamiroquai haven't released an album - UNTIL NOW!
That's right, folks! The boys of funk have packed some canned heat in their heels ready to deliver this much awaited album on March 31st, 2017. The power of sevens!
Following the 2012 20th anniversary remakes the new record is titled "Automation" and will be their first in quite some time but that's not all!
Along with new music and a cool video teaser, Jamiroquai are also confirmed to headline a few festivals this summer around Europe.
