Damn...I'm definitely excited for this. New music and a tour from one of my faves, Andrew McMahon in the WIlderness.

Zombies On Broadway will officially drop November 16th, with new single "Teenage Rockstars" leading the way. Andrew took to Instagram to tell some stories about the songs.

“Welcome to the land of Upside Down Flowers. We don’t live here because it’s easy, we live here because it’s beautiful,” the singer writes. “When I close my eyes and think about these songs I see the faces of the people I wrote them for.” “Find what you love, be patient or be quick. There is a piece of me in this and I hope a piece of you, my friends,” he continues. “As I see it we are all upside down flowers. Beautiful and backwards, and if we’re lucky…just a little proud.

Welcome to the land of Upside Down Flowers. We don’t live here because it’s easy, we live here because it’s beautiful. When I close my eyes and think about these songs I see the faces of the people I wrote them for. Some are so real I can conjure our shared lives in waves of nostalgia and others are a fiction I’ve grown to love so dearly over time they might as well be old friends. I see Penelope, the runaway, on a midnight bicycle ride. I see my friends and former bandmates on stages the world over as we navigated the strangest coming of age. I see the gambler driving to Las Vegas with every last dollar he can muster trying to pay off a debt he never knew he had. I see my grandmother in the courtyard on Lido and again in a bed at my aunts house where I played her one last song before she passed. I see the back house and the blue ocean, and all the heroes in heaven. I see the piano from my teenage years and my fingers getting older on it’s keys. I see my wife like a statue of calm with my daughter at her side and I see my sister in the backseat of the family car as we pulled out of that driveway in Ohio. I wrote this fast and alone in a California winter. I entrusted the production to Butch Walker, a friend and fellow traveler. A man I met in a moment so bizarre and so far gone now, but one that shaped me for years to come. How grateful I am we ended up back in each others orbits. I’ve sent this record to friends who have said it’s my best and to some who never replied. What that means in the long run, I have no idea. What I know is this came from someplace primal and practiced and true. Find what you love, be patient or be quick. There is a piece of me in this and I hope a piece of you, my friends. As I see it we are all upside down flowers. Beautiful and backwards, and if we’re lucky…just a little proud. Pre-order Upside Down Flowers, out 11/16 (link in bio)
