Jay Kay says he's not quitting music
Jamiroquai singer Jay Kay has hit back at reports that he is quitting music.
The singer claims he is not taking a break to settle down with his family, despite splitting with record giant SonyBMG.
He told his official website: “As usual they got it wrong for a cheap headline! All I said was that we’re taking a bit of time out to get the studio refurbished and we’ll be back making music in a few months time.
“There’s no way I’m quitting the music business – now I am out of my long contract with SonyBMG we have so many options open to us we’re just going to take our time and get it right – it’s just getting interesting!”
The singer also said that he’s planning to write a new album later in the year.
According to the Daily Mirror, the singer had previously said: “I haven’t been happy there for a while. I’ve had some ups and downs but in the end the downs were just too many. When we talked about me leaving, I jumped at the chance. I’m bored. I don’t want to go back on the road. We all need a rest to be honest. I don’t need the money or a deal.”
Jamiroquai have sold 27 million albums since they formed in the early 1990s.
