"Stillness in Time" was released as the fifth and final overall single from British funk/acid jazz band Jamiroquai's second studio album, The Return of the Space Cowboy. The track peaked at #9 on the UK Singles Chart, making it the group's second highest charting release to that date.
The song was later covered by Scottish DJ Calvin Harris on the anniversary album Radio 1 Established 1967, which was released in 2007. This version features snippets of the Jamiroquai original, however, Jamiroquai is not credited on the release. Three main versions of the track exist. A radio edit, which runs at 3:43, the main album version, which runs at 4:11, and the extended vinyl version, which runs at 6:13, and appears on the vinyl version of The Return of the Space Cowboy. The music video for the track strikes some similarities to the video for Light Years, as they both feature Jamiroquai skateboarding down a mountain.
