25 million albums sold. Over 20 hit singles. A career which has spanned an era defying 18 years. And now Jay Kay and his band are back to reclaim their crown as one of the UK's premiere musical exports with the sublime Rock Dust Light Star, their 7th studio album, the first in five years and their debut for Mercury Records.
At a time when many acts are producing electronic, disco influenced tracks, with Rock Dust Light Star Jamiroquai have moved on from the sound they helped popularise and reverted to a more organic, live sound. The shift is one that has revitalised the band, and produced their most engaging, vital album in years.
In singer Jay Kay's words, "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. The album is entirely written by Kay and his Jamiroquai bandmates and produced by Kay alongside first time collaborators Charlie Russell and Brad Spence.
