People and Things marks McMahon's third studio release as Jack's Mannequin, following up 2005's Everything In Transit and 2008's The Glass Passenger.
According to Andrew McMahon, Jack's Mannequin's 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.
"The reality is that getting sick turned Jack's into this long story that was really only meant to be one record, but somehow became three," he explains. "I think, if nothing else, People and Things is about the journey, and knowing where I belong and trying to get myself okay with putting my feet down and being there."
