Simple Minds New Single “First you Jump” is the second track released from the album. It's a Kerr-Burchill co-write with Simple Minds’ long-time bassist Ged Grimes. The band describes it as classic transcendent Simple Minds anthem, one about the anxiety of the times and how we will rise above them.

JJ & JoAnne talked with lead singer Jim Kerr about the album and the video for "First You Jump", shot at the Ancient Theatre Taormina in Sicily, Italy.
