“‘Jump out the Window’ is perhaps the song from the album’s creation that enlightened us,” shares Yelawolf. “I just walked into the booth and started doing this vocal percussion with handclaps. There was no music, we had no idea what we were going to write that day, I just had a pocket I wanted to explore. Then Shooter looped it and sat down and found this amazing buzzing synth line, then came John’s marching guitar part, then Ted had the perfect bassline, and here’s Jamie pulling part of snare drum at the top of the record out of nowhere it was like it just shot this song into space. And just like that, we felt like a real band that got it. The vocal melody and concept came to me in minutes. After writing the music, I knew what the song should say.

“‘Jump Out The Window’ is a track that was created from scratch in the studio,” adds Jennings. “I showed up and Wolf and Jamie Douglass had already followed the drums. Wolf had gone into the booth and created the applause loop and Jamie had laid down the drums for the whole song. I walked into the studio with my trusty DX7 and started playing just two chords. Next thing you know, we got this banger! It’s one of my favorite songs and videos from the project. We were out in the Nevada desert in swaying 90 mph winds. I thought those flags were gonna fly off the ground and impale us all. Rock and roll can be dangerous. Don’t try this at home.”

On paper, hip hop superstar Yelawolf and Jennings, one of the world’s most sought-after producers and songwriters, might not seem like the most obvious combination. But after listening to their collaboration as Sometimes Y, you’ll quickly realize that their chemistry, built from a decades-plus friendship, is actually as intoxicating as it is unexpected.
