    Had to cheat, but I found these:

    1. a moving mechanical device made in imitation of a human being.
      synonyms: robot, android, cyborg, droid, bot
      "assembly-line automatons"
      • a machine that performs a function according to a predetermined set of coded instructions, especially one capable of a range of programmed responses to different circumstances.
      • used in similes and comparisons to refer to a person who seems to act in a mechanical or unemotional way.

    Re: the album...I'm in.
    Album due date 31 March 2017, is the same of Aimee Mann?
    My purchases will be Yin/Yang that day.

    Love it! As I was watching it, I thought the video was a rip off of The Man Who Fell to Earth but then later on in the song, he mentions the film...'Feel like a man, who fell to Earth'

    It's only been seven years since "Rock Dust Light Star" ... hope it's been worth the wait.

    I'm not a purist but I wish they'd go back to their early organic sound from the 'Emergency on Planet Earth' era.. I don't like this one at all.

    He doesn't get accused of ripping off Stevie Wonder anymore though.

    I think it's great, his last couple of albums were patchy at best, hopefully this will be a return to form.

    With a bit of luck, the weather will be nice when we see him in August!

    Zender was a monster! Is he actually doing anything at all now?

    Nick Fyffe's new(ish) band the Temperance Movement are great, nothing at all like Jamiroquai though.

    Don't know what he is up to these days! Still don't know the full details of why he left.

    He was Mark Ronson's musical director for some time, apparently. Looks like he's playing with Steve Salas now.

    Fed up of JK being a dick over writing/production credits was the story I heard most often.

    Got this tune on repeat. It's totally addictive.

    Have to disagree with you, I think Rock Dust Light Star is an excellent album. I just got the Euro vinyl this week and it sounds fantastic, had it spinning at high SPLs all day today. House was rocking.

    Pre-order for the cd on Amazon dot ca (listed as an "import") is just a wee bit inflated right now.
    As in $27.58 Can.
    It also shows a release date of 7 April 2017.

    I think the first single "Automaton" sounds promising, so Im definitely looking forward to hearing this new album.
    I have heard most of the albums and material, some albums more than others, but I suppose Jamiroquai never lost it, or where there any not so good albums?
    Think Im gonna start listening to the albums in chronological order soon as I haven't listened to much Jamiroquai lately.
    I really, I mean really liked the older stuff, it's just that great with bass making the whole place shake a round. Must be the latest 2 albums that I haven't that much heard.
    Guess I have to check the newer song soon, Im little affraid based on the comments here.
