Veteran singer/songwriter Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness has announced that he will be releasing this new album, Tilt At the Wind No More, on March 31st via Nettwerk.
To go along with the album announcement, McMahon has released his sprawling new single, “Lying on the Hood of Your Car,” which can be found below alongside it’s Jax Anderson (Tegan & Sara, Jagwar Twin) directed music video.
“For me, this song is pure nostalgia,” shares McMahon. “I made a conscious decision when I was writing it to imagine a whole world of important figures in my life lying next to me on the hood of that imagined vehicle. In one breath it’s a song about young love and in another it’s about those nights out with friends. Nights that ended in parking lot conversations about lives you might lead one day and places you might escape to if you could. I rarely build imagined worlds when I write songs but something about this one feels very much like a memory to me.”
Tilt At The Wind No More will mark the fourth full-length studio album for McMahon under his Wilderness moniker, the follow-up to 2018’s Upside Down Flowers, and his first collection for Nettwerk. The album was produced by Tommy English (Kacey Musgraves, K.Flay) and Jeremy Hatcher (Harry Styles, Lizzo, Maggie Rogers) and features his jubilant radio hit “Stars,” which peaked at #34 on the Alternative Radio chart, and recent singles “Skywriting,” co-written with K.Flay, the synth-pop “VHS,” and romantic ballad “Built To Last.”
