Jack’s Mannequin – “My Racing Thoughts”

Jack’s Mannequin have released a lyric video for “My Racing Thoughts.” The song will appear on the band’s forthcoming record, ‘People and Things,’ which is scheduled for release on October 4.

Frontman Andrew McMahon stated, “I consider ‘People and Things’ a relationship record. My goal with many of the songs was to strip away the flowery language and sentiment attached to newer love and replace it with starker, less blinded language about more binding love. In the time following the last Jack’s album the people in my world were moving in together, getting married, trying to find quote unquote ‘real jobs’ and reconciling new lives that looked a lot less like youth than some of us cared for. Marriage is a bit of a beast to tackle in a pop record but when I wrote ‘My Racing Thoughts,’ it became clear how powerful and loaded a subject this kind of love is and somewhere in that moment I began to lock into the broad concept for the writing sessions to come.”
