Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness shares surprise new track, "Ohio"

ABC/Randy HolmesSurprise! Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness has a new song. The reflective track is called "Ohio," and is available now via digital outlets.

"Ohio" isn't attached to any album, and, in fact, McMahon didn't even mean to write it. As he explains in a Facebook post, the song took form while he was "sitting in my little back house studio and making noises until they sounded like music."

"It's rare for me to dig so far into my memory, but in this case the call was not one that could go unanswered," McMahon writes. "'Ohio' is about my families pilgrimage from a small town in Ohio to the coast of California. I call it a pilgrimage because that's how it felt. At least that's how I remember it."

McMahon's most recent Wilderness album is 2017's Zombies on Broadway. He's currently in the middle of his Pen and the Piano acoustic tour, which continues May 12 in Phoenix.
