Jimmy Eat World recently released a hypnotic new track, “Place Your Debts,” along with a video directed by and starring frontman Jim Adkins.
Co-produced by the band and Justin Meldal-Johnsen, “Place Your Debts” follows “Something Loud,” which dropped in June. The song was written in collaboration with Clark Baechle and Denver Dalley.
“The ‘debt’ you rack up is the time you spend avoiding doing the work to know yourself,” Adkins explains. “You buy an ending every time you start something, and the cost is determined by how closely you pay attention to your personal condition.”
“It’s a series of many, many edits of me singing to the camera,” Adkins says about the video. “While every shot is different in terms of background, I’m framed with as close to the same composition in every one.”
For the song’s bridge, Adkins turned the camera away from himself toward compelling imagery shot throughout the U.S., U.K. and Europe during the band’s headlining tours.
The alternative rock band are currently on the road with their Something Loud Tour. The tour kicked off on September 8 at Rock Hall Live in Cleveland, Ohio, and concludes with a performance at the When We Were Young festival in Las Vegas on October 29.
The band is also working on their new album, which is being produced by the band along with Meldel-Johnson.
Jimmy Eat World released their 10th and most recent album, Surviving, in 2019.
