After a seven year absence, Jamiroquai are set to return on March 31st with a brand new album, Automaton. The title track found the British band exploring a more electronic side of their sound, filled as it was with robotic whirs and ticks. New track “Cloud 9”, however, finds them comfortably floating through the lighter side of future funk.
“Cloud 9” is a mild disco track that encapsulates the feeling of new love with its skipping bass line and airy synths. In a press release, frontman Jay Kay said, “‘Cloud 9’ is a song that’s written in the style that I hope people know us for and are familiar with. It’s a song that if anyone that has been jilted and yet found love somewhere else will no doubt relate to. Can’t wait for you to hear it – get in the car, stick it on the radio and just drive.”
