On “Jesus,” Jimi draws inspiration from the grandiose and ‘larger than life’ songs from Christian summer camps. Beyond its sheeny surface is a delicate portrait of a life tangled up with frustration and confusion. “Jesus” is elevated by Jimi’s reflective songwriting and vision in understanding pop’s power to invigorate weary minds. The track also features the angelic vocals of Kacy Hill and is co-produced by longtime collaborator Milo Orchis.
In his own words, Jimi Somewhere says this of his new single:
“’Jesus’ is a song about a lot of different things, but overall it’s about frustration & feeling lost. I grew up Christian, but as I grew older I felt that my faith was more based on routine and tradition than personal belief. Slowly I fell out with the church, but I still felt like every time I did something that didn’t align with the values I grew up on, it would affect my life in a negative way. So, I’ve been trying to find the balance there. I really think regardless of faith and what you believe, we all can learn from Jesus. To accept everybody, be honest, be open, love everybody & bear no judgment. The church itself also often seems to forget that part.”
