James Euringer, aka Jimmy Urine (Mindless Self Indulgence), has premiered a new song titled “Sailor In A Life Boat,” via Alternative Press. The track features My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way and it will appear on Euringer’s new solo album, which is set to be released on October 19.
“The thing about this record that really blew me away is how experimental it is. Knowing Jimmy, I didn’t simply expect a Mindless 2.0 record, but nothing really prepared me for just how out there he got with this one.
It’s exciting. Yes, it has hooks that he is great at writing, [and] yes, it is fun and dancey at times, but [it’s] also really bold and different. Jimmy stretched himself in new and interesting ways, which was awesome to hear—expect the unexpected with this one.”
“The meaning of the song is that I’m very comfortable being alone and being by myself. I have always been that way, and I think that a lot of people are not comfortable with being alone socially.
That led me to the ‘sailor in a life boat’ lyric. I can be alone for long periods. Obviously I couldn’t live without my wife, and I love my close friends and family. But I am also totally fine hanging out by myself, and I have been that way since I was a kid.”
