Blue Skies is the second single from British alternative group Jamiroquai's studio album, Rock Dust Light Star.[2] The single was released via Digital Download on 1 November 2010.[1] The song was written by band frontman Jay Kay and Matt Johnson. It is the band's second single to be released under Mercury Records.[2] The single did not receive an official physical release due to the fact it was released on the same date as the group's album.[2] It appears that the Jamiroquai logo typeface has been stretched vertically for this release. The video for the single was made available on the group's YouTube account on 25 September.[3] The track peaked at #76 on the UK Singles Chart.
