Jack's Mannequin Set To Release New Album, People and Things, October 4.

Jack's Mannequin is back. On October 4th, Andrew McMahon and crew return with a new record, People and Things. The first single 'My Racing Thoughts' is now streaming on the band's website and will be available in multiple pre-order bundles starting August 2nd.

Says Andrew McMahon about People and Things:

"I consider 'People and Things' a relationship record. My goal with many of the songs was to strip away the flowery language and sentiment attached to newer love and replace it with starker, less blinded language about more binding love. In the time following the last Jack's album the people in my world were moving in together, getting married, trying to find quote unquote 'real jobs' and reconciling new lives that looked a lot less like youth than some of us cared for. Marriage is a bit of a beast to tackle in a pop record but when I wrote 'My Racing Thoughts,' it became clear how powerful and loaded a subject this kind of love is and somewhere in that moment I began to lock into the broad concept for the writing sessions to come."

Jack's Mannequin is playing a couple of dates on this year's Vans Warped Tour before heading out on a co-headlining summer tour with Guster, full list of upcoming dates is below. Additionally, for the first time in the band's history, Jack's Mannequin will be playing a show with a full symphony orchestra. On Thursday, October 6th, Jack's Mannequin will team up with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra to create symphonic arrangements for some of their best-known hits at The Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts.
