Andrew Mcmahon And His New Anthemic Song Teenage Rockstars

Upside Down Flowers, the new studio album from Andrew McMahon in The Wilderness, drops November 16th. Andrew McMahon commented on the new track "Teenage Rockstars".

-I’ve tried to write this song a few times. I’m glad I waited. I don’t think anyone is ever ready for their dreams to come true. I know I wasn’t. All I’ve ever wanted to be was a songwriter. When I finally got the chance, it happened so fast, I didn’t fully appreciate how lucky I was. Looking back on that moment now I’m so grateful to still be sitting behind this piano; to be able to reflect with joy and without judgment on what it meant to be a teenager in a band living out my dreams with my best friends at my side. I know now what I had and what I have. With each new day I get to practice my craft, I try to honor the innocence of that dream with my gratitude. I dedicate this song to every kid out there wondering if it’s okay to dream of being a rockstar. I say “fucking dream."
