Recorded in Los Angeles, it has been composed and produced by the artist himself in his studio and it is now possible to enjoy the first preview, “I don’t mind”, which, according to the statements collected by Warner Music, “Talks about the challenges faced by long-term relationships.”
“Over time two people find the inevitable need to increase their initial dynamics with more flexibility, acceptance and the willingness to continually work on conflicts. It is the essence of a lasting relationship. The song celebrates that spirit and that discipline ”, the American artist has explained.
His record company has described what will be his seventh solo album as a “good sample of the guitar work and vocal technique” of its author, with songs like “Power Down”, “Scream” or “Swang Song”. As a surprise, he also covers the song “Time” by the 1960s folk group Pozo-Seco Singers.
“I wanted to make a pop record, but I also wanted to make stops along the way with songs that were more like art than pop. As you get older, it is to be expected that you will become a little more established in the trade than you do. For me, getting older has probably helped reinforce innocence and idealism. “, has declared the ex-member of Fleetwood Mac.
“Lindsay Buckingham” (Warner Music) will be released on vinyl (standard and color editions), on CD and in digital format and will take over from “Seed We Sow” (2011), which until now appears as his last solo installment.
The Californian, born in the town of Palo Alto in 1949, joined Fleetwood Mac with Stevie Nicks at the end of 1974, working as a guitarist, composer and vocalist and actively participating in some of their most emblematic albums, especially “Rumors ”(1977).
This work earned him his induction into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, although his relationship with the band has not been as good as the success story might indicate. In fact, in 2018 he was fired for disagreements with the group’s leader, Mick Fleetwood.
Recently, he acknowledged in an interview with Rolling Stone that the relationship had improved and, when asked if it would be possible to see them together again, he replied: “The strangest things can happen. I see Fleetwood Mac as a great family, each one has played an important role in its history (…) and Lindsay’s contribution, for obvious reasons, will never be and should never be forgotten ”.
