A week after unveiling their first new song in three years, Jimmy Eat World has returned with yet another new track. On Tuesday (Aug. 30), the Arizona-founded band debuted the second single off of their impending new record; a track titled “Sure and Certain.” The new tune marks the second song the group has premiered off of their upcoming ninth studio album. Listen to “Sure and Certain” below.
In addition to releasing their new single, the band has also formally announced the name and release date for the new album. Jimmy Eat World’s new record will be titled Integrity Blues and is set to be released on Oct. 21 through RCA Records. Last Monday (Aug. 22), frontman Jim Adkins spoke to BBC Radio 1 DJ, Daniel P. Carter, about the group’s new album while premiering “Get Right.” During the interview, Adkins was asked whether the group had a projected release date for the album. “We do,” Adkins responded with a chuckle at the time. “We’ll be talking about that soon, but I don’t want to get people’s hopes up and have to backtrack after that.” Less than 12 hours after the interview was broadcast, the release date was announced to the public, though the band never formally confirmed or denied it.
“Sure and Certain” will join “Get Right” on Integrity Blues. Integrity Blues will mark the band’s first new record since the release of 2013’s Damage. As previously announced by Adkins, the new record was produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen who previously worked with M83 and Paramore.
