A Yamaha Oak Custom drum kit features heavily on Jamiroquai's new album.

The band's drummer Derrick McKenzie employed the drum set on the recording of Rock Dust Light Star, which was released earlier this week.

The Oak Custom drum kit was not the only Yamaha instrument to be used in the making of the album, with keyboard player Matt Johnson using Motif XS-8 equipment in the studio.

Rock Dust Light Star was recorded in a number of different locations, including Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Thailand and marks the group's comeback after being signed by Mercury Records.

The band's frontman Jay Kay has previously revealed his rules for writing good pop songs.

"If it doesn't sound good with just a keyboard and a voice or a guitar and a voice, drop it," he said.

His approach appears to have worked, as the band's previous albums have sold more than 25 million copies to date.
