Busy Earnin'

Play Video

Songfacts®:

  • Jungle is a London-based group comprising Josh "J" Lloyd-Watson and Tom "T" McFarland, who grew up as neighbors in West London. This is a track from their eponymous debut album.
  • Jungle told NME about the song: "It's weird, a lot of people seem to have thought this song's a celebration of making money when it's completely the opposite. It's about that fear of spending your life chasing a career you don't really want."
  • J told The Sun: "There were so many versions of Busy Earnin'. We had a seven minute psychedelic version that got cut down, but I do think there was a point where it came together like glue, and I sat down and thought, 'This sounds really good.'"
  • The video shows an unidentified street dance crew who hold their pose before completing an aggressive routine choreographed by Birdgang member Kendra J Horsburgh. J told NME: "The guys in 'Busy Earnin' represent the meanings of the song, but just in their eyes. I love that human emotion. It's true to what we're about."
