“'The Jump' is the first song I wrote for the record, right at the beginning of my travels,” explains Battelle. “The foreboding literal narrative of the lyric feels like an introduction to all that will transpire on the rest of the record. The Jump is about reconciling the voice in my head telling me to take that leap of faith, knowing everything will change once the metaphorical leap occurs.”
The song was produced by Dan Weller (Enter Shikari, Young Guns) and features guest vocals by 48 primary school children.
