Gossip have premiered a new video for their track "Get a Job." Taken off the band's latest studio album A Joyful Noise, the Price James-directed clip depicts the band inhabiting a collection of ads in a newspaper's classified section. According to the band the song "is about all the rich kids we knew when we were younger, kids who never had jobs but always had money for partying or getting their hair done. We would come home from our fast food jobs in greasy clothes and they would have spent all their parents’ money on handbags and vodka."

In addition to the video the Olympia-based trio made a list of some of the real-world jobs they've held in the past, and "some we'll probably have again the future."
