Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness just started their tour on Tuesday, and already fans are getting a taste of some new music. At a recent concert in Tucson, Arizona, Andrew McMahon debuted a brand new song called “Fire Escape,” which will likely appear on his upcoming second album. “Fire Escape” is a cheery, upbeat love song that will have you smiling and dancing along in no time. In the chorus Andrew sings, “You’re my number one, you’re the reason I’m still up at dawn just to see your face. We’ll be going strong with the vampires, baby. We belong, we belong.”
You can watch Andrew perform the new song in the fan-recorded video below. “Fire Escape” may be a brand new song, but the crowd was already loving it, clapping along to what could become Andrew’s next single. The live audio is great, and hopefully a studio version will be out later this year.
Andrew McMahon was originally in the punk band Something Corporate in the early 2000s. He later formed Jack’s Mannequin, and in 2014 announced his new solo project, Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness. He released his self-titled debut album in October 2014, led by the long-lasting hit, “Cecilia And The Satellite.”
Earlier this year, Andrew began writing and recording for his second Wilderness album. In January he’d already written 5 good songs, and in May Andrew told EW that this will be his best record yet. He’s been recording in New York City rather than his usual home state of California.
“Fire Escape” is just our first taste of the new songs Andrew is preparing. He’ll be on tour with Weezer and Panic! At The Disco over the next few months, and then he’ll be ready to finish up his record. The new Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness album could be out as early as this fall.
