Andrew McMahon announces new solo song, tour dates

Andrew McMahon has announced a new song with his solo project Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness, titled “Cecilia and the Satellite.” The song will come from a self-titled record to be released sometime this fall.

McMahon commented on the meaning behind the song:

As a song it encapsulate so much living against the back drop of a new life. Cecilia was written with the knowledge that my wife and I would soon meet our first child. With the hope of avoiding territory this type of song often treads, I tried to create a road map of the life I had lived leading up to that moment. One my daughter might look back on some day. A strange life of constant motion, spent traveling in the pursuit of music. A life I’ve nearly lost on more than one occasion and one which I am thankful for, now more than ever. Deep down this song is about more than me and where I’ve been, it’s about more than my daughter and what I want for her. It’s about being proud of where you come from and wanting the most for the people you share your world with.

McMahon has also announced a string of tour dates this fall, kicking off in October in San Diego, California at the House of Blues, with more to be announced soon.
