ETonline recently caught up with Andrew McMahon to talk about his 10 years as a cancer survivor and the Jack’s Mannequin reunion tour celebrating 10 years since their debut album, Everything In Transit. Although Jack’s Mannequin is no longer recording new music, Andrew McMahon has moved on to a new project, Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness, and released their self-titled debut album in October 2014. It launched the hit single, “Cecilia And The Satellite.”
While discussing his 10 years since beating leukemia and releasing Everything In Transit, Andrew also talked about new music. He’s already started writing, and plans to focus on that over the next few months after the Jack’s Mannequin tour:
I won’t know if [the album] is done until I’m done. I could be halfway through or I could be 10 percent through. There are four or five songs I’m really connected to that aren’t finished, but I feel like the heart and soul of them are there, so February, March, and April will be, in theory, a telling period of creative time.
Andrew also revealed that his team feels “like we have the first single off the next record, and we’re excited about it.”
With 4 or 5 songs and a single ready, it looks like we won’t have to wait long for the next Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness record! In addition to this month’s nearly sold out reunion tour (which kicked off yesterday in San Francisco), Andrew McMahon will be hitting the road with Weezer and Panic! At The Disco this summer. Be sure to get tickets from his official site; they go on sale on January 22nd.
We could have the new Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness album as early as this fall or the first few months of 2017. With any luck, we could hear a new tune during their summer tour as well. Keep checking back here for all the latest Andrew McMahon music news.
