Two weeks ago, Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness debuted a brand new song, “Paper Rain,” live. Following “Ohio,” “Teenage Rockstars,” and “Blue Vacation,” it’s the fourth new song we’ve heard from his upcoming third album, Upside Down Flowers. Today, fans can hear the album version of the song, a full week before the record finally drops.
“Paper Rain” is a mid-tempo, atmospheric song that paints a story with beautiful imagery. The new audio offers a new side to the song than the live performance we first heard. The percussion is strong, a driving force like a train engine. Andrew’s voice has a distorted, echoed effect that lends “Paper Rain” a nostalgic vibe. This song sounds similar to “Canyon Moon” from the self-titled debut Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness album.
Listen to “Paper Rain” below:
