  • Andrew McMahon explained that this reflective stand-alone single took form while he was "sitting in my little back house studio and making noises until they sounded like music."

    He added; "It's rare for me to dig so far into my memory, but in this case the call was not one that could go unanswered. 'Ohio' is about my family's pilgrimage from a small town in Ohio to the coast of California. I call it a pilgrimage because that's how it felt. At least that's how I remember it."
