According to Andrew McMahon, Jack’s Mannequin’s third album, People and Things, can be viewed as the final installment to a three-part story. But fear not, fans – while this chapter is coming to a close, there’s still plenty to be written.
If the 29-year-old’s debut, Everything in Transit, was his melodic break-up record, and 2008’s The Glass Passenger was a snapshot of his battle with leukemia, People and Things could analogously be referred to as “the return home,” McMahon says.
McMahon is truly a storyteller, a quality that is evidenced within each of Jack’s Mannequin’s albums, as well as with all three as a whole. As for where the story goes after this point, the frontman says anything is possible. “There are a lot of things I’d like to be. I’d love to explore other mediums of art,” he says. “I would love to experiment and explore music in new ways. We’ll see…I guess time will tell.” To be continued…
