Andrew McMahon Teams Up With Lindsey Stirling For “Something Wild”

There’s a brand new song out that you need to hear. Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness teamed up with violinist Lindsey Stirling for a beautiful new song called “Something Wild.” The pair wrote the track for Disney’s upcoming movie, Pete’s Dragon, a remake of the 1977 film of the same name. The updated movie hits theaters on August 12th.

“Something Wild” is inspirational and touching, combining violin with piano, strummed guitar, and soaring vocals. It has the expansive, rustic sound of the first Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness album as well as the magical element of Lindsey’s violin. Listen to “Something Wild” below:

As Lindsey explained in a Facebook video earlier this week, she was approached by Disney to compose a song for Pete’s Dragon. She and Andrew watched the film and then wrote “Something Wild” that same day. Disney ended up liking the song, and it will play over the ending credits of the movie.

“Something Wild” also appears on Lindsey’s new album, Brave Enough. It’s her third studio album, and will be released on August 19th. You can pre-order it on iTunes now and get an instant download of “Something Wild.” Alternately, you have the option to just buy the one song.

Lindsey is on tour now, and after releasing Brave Enough next month, she will embark on another tour this fall. You can find a full list of dates and tickets at her official site.

Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness, on the other hand, is currently on tour with Weezer and Panic! At The Disco. (Find dates and tickets here.) He’s getting ready to release his second studio album under this moniker, following the 2014 debut, Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness. Andrew has already performed one new song called “Fire Escape,” and is aiming to release the new album this fall. You can read up on all we know about that so far.

    Will this song be up for an Oscar??!! It is really magical and makes me cry everything I hear it. And since my daughter started violin, it’s one of her favorites.
