Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness has released a new song called “Get on My Wave.”

The track, which you can download now via digital outlets, first debuted during McMahon’s drive-in concerts earlier this month in California.

“I’ve struggled with releasing the song during the pandemic because it felt too happy; detached from the tumult of our current world,” McMahon says. “Lately it’s been making more sense to me.”

“It’s a song about love and alienation and how in a world where things can look perfect on the surface there are always currents running beneath and tides which push and pull at the shore,” he continues. “It’s about finding your people and acknowledging your relationship with those forces outside of your control and saying, ‘let’s ride this out together.'”

“Get on My Wave” follows the latest Wilderness album, 2018’s Upside Down Flowers.
