Andrew McMahon has been through a lot in his 32 years on earth: like all of us, he has lived joy, pain, accident, and illness; unlike most he's also dealt with the vagaries of the music business, the strains of tour; he has battled cancer and witnessed the birth of his first child. Life has changed and so has Andrew. If, as McMahon says, "music is a mirror to the adventure of living," each new chapter of life deserves its own title. As such, his music will go forward under the name Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness.

As AMITW, he has shared his new single, "Cecilia and the Satellite." The track is from his forthcoming self-titled album, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness to be released this fall, marking his debut on Vanguard Records. "Cecilia" is a triumphal pop smash, its soaring chorus anchored by a bass line like the steady thump of a heartbeat. An ode to his new daughter, McMahon gently declares, "for all the things my hands have held the best by far is you."

McMahon says of the new name, "I suppose my wilderness is mostly an abstract one. Since putting Jack's Mannequin behind me, I have forced myself into strange spaces seeking new stimulus. New lights on the path to the high of a finished song. I've met amazing people in the process; people who have propped this mission up, adding a palate of sound and perspective. This new name carries with it the spirit of that collaboration."

Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness will be released this fall. McMahon describes the recording process as moving "from more than one Southern California garage, to a cabin set deep in Topanga Canyon, to a shoebox studio in the thick of the Hollywood tourist traps. The only constants have been my keyboard and a desire to make my best music."

McMahon is currently on tour, opening a string of dates for Matt Nathanson and Gavin Degraw across the US. He will also be headlining shows beginning October 14th.
