If 2014’s 27 was a stepping stone to adulthood, new single “Burn Away” from M. Lockwood Porter is the sound of one cautiously settling into life’s uncertainties. A Yale alumnus and former English teacher, the California singer/songwriter born in Oklahoma and raised on punk music finds himself in a different place these years as he awaits the release of his third album, How to Dream Again: “I’m in love, in a very healthy, serious relationship, and I’m happier with where I’m at in terms of my music, but with being further along in my personal life come new questions like ‘How do you maintain what’s good about a relationship? How do you keep it from going stale?'”
Porter will release How to Dream Again on September 16 via Bandcamp.
