Last month, Veteran indie singer/songwriter Andrew McMahon announced the plans to release his brand new album, Tilt At the Wind No More, on March 31st via Nettwerk and released the lead single, “Lying on the Hood of Your Car.” Today, McMahon is back with the piano ballad, “Nobody Tells You When You’re Young.”
“‘Nobody Tells You When You’re Young’ is about how the most important lessons in life are often unteachable,” shares McMahon. “Despite the best intentions of those who go before us, many of life’s most profound, thrilling, and heartbreaking moments cannot be explained or prepared for. Encountering some of life’s great milestones – fatherhood and marriage, grief and loss, success and failure – I’ve often been struck by the notion that someone should have paved the way for me, only to realize they had, and I just wasn’t listening. That’s what this song is about. It’s not an indictment of youth or maturity, it’s just a simple realization that some things you have to see for yourself.”
Tilt At The Wind No More is now officially available to pre-save on DSPs and pre-order on CD and vinyl here.
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.”
