High Times: Singles 1992-2006 is a compilation album by the British band Jamiroquai that was released on 6 November 2006 in the United Kingdom and 8 November 2006 in Japan.
The album was intended to be a collection of the group's singles, but it is more widely known as a collection of the band's best-known hits, as it does not include the singles "Stillness in Time", "Half the Man" (available on both the regular and deluxe Japanese pressings), "Light Years", "Supersonic", "King for a Day" and "You Give Me Something", as well as omitting the international-only singles "The Kids" and "Black Capricorn Day".
All tracks from previous albums have been re-tooled and remixed for a consistent listening experience. The album also includes two newly recorded songs, "Runaway" and "Radio". The album ended Jamiroquai's contract with Sony BMG. The album peaked at No. 1 on the UK Albums Chart.
It is well noted that the album received relatively heavy promotion for a greatest hits album. Posters promoting the album were found in some cities, and many promotional performances were also held, with the most notable one being the London Jazz Cafe performance, which is notable for being the first Jamiroquai performance in the last few years that included wind instruments. The album was also heavily promoted via the internet, most notably via Yahoo! Answers, where a competition to win an MP3 player that contains the album was held. The sleeve art for the album features Jay Kay's signature Silver Crown headpiece photographed on a beach with rock formations. In promotional images of the album, a reflection of the photographer shooting the image can be seen in the hat's surface; however, in the cover of the actual release, the reflection was erased from the image.
