"Half the Man" was released as the third overall single from British funk/acid jazz band Jamiroquai's second studio album, The Return of the Space Cowboy. The track peaked at #15 on the UK Singles Chart.


The track was later featured on the soundtrack of cult British surf movie Blue Juice. The song gained recognition for its popular instrumental B-side, "Space Clav", which has never been included on any other Jamiroquai release, until the anniversary re-issue of the album in 2013. With the exception of its inclusion on both regular and deluxe Japanese pressings, it is one of nine pre-2006 singles that do not appear on the group's greatest hits album, High Times: The Singles 1992-2006. There are two different versions of the music video for the track. The first video features Jay Kay performing the song, intercut with footage of a couple kissing. The second video removes the footage of the couple kissing. The track was later released as the double A-side to "Light Years" in the United States.
