Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness Releases New Single “Nobody Tells You When You’re Young”

“‘Nobody Tells You When You’re Young’ is about how the most important lessons in life are often unteachable,” shares McMahon. “Despite the best intentions of those who go before us, many of life’s most profound, thrilling, and heartbreaking moments cannot be explained or prepared for. Encountering some of life’s great milestones – fatherhood and marriage, grief and loss, success and failure – I’ve often been struck by the notion that someone should have paved the way for me, only to realize they had, and I just wasn’t listening. That’s what this song is about. It’s not an indictment of youth or maturity, it’s just a simple realization that some things you have to see for yourself.”
