Earlier in the day, Andrew McMahon joined forces with Buzzfeed to debut a new track off his forthcoming solo effort, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness. Titled “High Dive,” it is the second song we’ve heard off the former-frontman’s newest record, following the release of “Cecilia And The Satellite” back in July. If you’re a fan, you can pre-order the album here before it hits shelves on October 14 via Vanguard Records.

“When I found out I was ill, nearly 10 years ago now, my wife, then girlfriend, and I had just begun the process of reconciling after being separated,” said McMahon. “We married in the midst of my recovery and left the beach towns where we grew up to hide out in Los Angeles. Moving back to the beach in 2011 began the process of closing the loop on that chapter of my life and forced me to revisit lose ends. In ‘High Dive’ I found myself asking the question, ‘if this wild disruption had never taken place what would that reconciliation have looked like? Would I be the guy driving by her house late at night, hoping to catch a glimpse of her, but knowing I couldn’t come in?’ In its most universal sense it’s about loving someone so much that you’ll take anything they’re willing to give even if it’s not enough.”
