Single Review: Jamiroquai – ‘Lifeline’

2 min read

The UK’s favorite acid jazz funksters Jamiroquai return this month with the latest track to be taken from the bands comeback album after a five year absence, Rock Dust Light Star, and follows the albums previous release, Blue Skies.

JamiroquaiLifelineLifeline, which opens with a complimenting round on the piano, and some energetic staccato, string coated beats, is a big band funk fueled delicacy for Jay Kay and co that is without doubt one of the best releases that the band have offered us in quite some time.

The track acts as single number two for the bands 2010 parent record. Unfortunately the album release and first single from the album saw a slight shadow cast of them due to the flack the bands leery front-man generated from his on screen quips while performing on the last series of the X Factor.

With that all now in the past and the bands new single set for release on Monday, Jamiroquai sound once again in top form and ready for a chart attack with this funky soul nugget. Lifeline is the show stealer on the record and the pulse behind the new collection of tracks and it’s one that packs a horn heavy punch with its instrumental perfection and Jay Kay’s bouncy, invigorating vocal crooning.
