Jamiroquai reissues

Jamiroquai have announced a series of album reissues on vinyl to mark the band's 30th anniversary. 

Kicking off on 14th October with their debut LP, 'Emergency On Planet Earth', the outfit will also re-release album five, 'A Funk Odyssey', on 4th November, 2005's 'Dynamite' on 11th November, and 'High Times' on 2nd December. The latter, a greatest hits collection spanning 1992 to 2006, will also be available on multiple formats. 

Often credited with bringing jazz and funk back into the mainstream charts, the group — fronted by the iconic and usually hat-clad Jay Kay — were also responsible for pushing an environmental agenda well ahead of its time, with the title of the 1993 debut album a clear reference to the climate crisis. Going on to sell more than 3million units globally, 'A Funk Odyssey' reached similar sales figures when it arrived in 2001. 

Pre-orders for all reissues are now available.

Following a hiatus of seven years, Jamiroquai returned to the release schedule in 2017 with their eighth studio album, 'Automation'.
