Holy shit, it’s actually pretty great?!

After teasing their new album Automaton last week with a trailer that tipped its helmet to Daft Punk’s Tron soundtrack, Jamiroquai have unveiled their first, unashamedly robot-loving single in seven years.

‘Automaton’ premiered on Jo Whiley’s BBC Radio 2 show last night (January 26) and it’s a vocoder-heavy slab of disco-funk that’s equal parts Supernature’ and equal parts Radio 1 A-list.

Even the hardiest of JayKay haters (me!) may even find themselves enjoying the track – if only for its similarities to Warp’s sci-fi IDM prince – Jackson and His Computerband. Memba him?!

The album Automaton is due for release on March 31. Listen to the track below.
