Who is Jamiroquai?

You may not have heard of them, but the band has been making hit music since the 1990s! Whether you’ve heard their music in movies, in concert, or on the radio, the jazz-punk band has been around for decades, inspiring fans. The popular band is fronted by lead singer Jay Kay, who has been regarded as one of the pioneers of the acid jazz movement. Other members include Stuart Zender, Paul Turner, and more. The original group came into formation back in 1992, when they released their debut single, “When You Gonna Learn,” and they signed with Sony Entertainment.

The funny thing is, they haven’t released an album since 2010’s Rock Dust Light Star, and they have been on hiatus ever since. However, there’s no denying those ’90s Jamiroquai jams were once being played on repeat for their fun lyrics and jazzy influence. They have changed members since they started, but have remained true to their music ever since.

Jamiroquai won four awards at the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards and a Grammy Award for their hit track, “Virtual Insanity.” The London, England-based band has sold more than 26 million albums worldwide. Now, after a break of seven years, the band is back to give their fans what they have wanted for so long.

When Will the New Album Be Ready?

After the news broke and the teaser video was released online, fans had only one question: When is Jamiroquai’s new album going to be ready? The band took to social media to tease about the new album, and the news was well-received by their devoted followers. So far, there’s no exact date, but rumors have been circulating about the 13-song album being released in a matter of months.
