Jamiroquai said in a statement that the band has always been interested in future concepts.

“Creating a land in which everyone can come together in The Sandbox with a bit of funk, freedom, and fashion would provide a communal spot to digitally connect with our fans and fellow music lovers,” Jamiroquai said.
