This is no different for Ian Hooper: 'There have been moments where I wished nothing more than to turn back the clock and iron out a wrinkle I'd made.' The new Mighty Oaks single, 'Lost Again,' from their forthcoming third album All Things Go is about one of those moments, about the wish to go back and change things.
