Fleetwood Mac’s Christine McVie and Lindsey Buckingham show off their still-potent songwriting chemistry on “Feel About You,” the latest track to be unveiled from their forthcoming debut album as a duo. Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie will be released on June 9th.
“Feel About You” is a bubbly pop-rock song similar to much of McVie’s solo work and the material she wrote and sang lead on for Fleetwood Mac in the Eighties. “You are the sky at night/Black and white/Green and blue,” she croons on the jangly, infectious chorus.
Buckingham and McVie decided to release an album following the reunion of Fleetwood Mac’s classic Rumours lineup, as the band itself works out if they will be releasing new music as a whole. During the Seventies and Eighties, the two memorably harmonized on songs like “I Don’t Want to Know” and “Hold Me” and co-wrote many tracks on 1987’s Tango in the Night.
“We’ve always written well together, Lindsey and I, and this has just spiraled into something really amazing that we’ve done between us,” McVie tells Rolling Stone. The LP will also feature contributions from fellow Fleetwood Mac members John McVie on bass and Mick Fleetwood on drums.
“We were exploring a creative process, and the identity of the project took on a life organically,” Buckingham adds. “The body of work felt like it was meant to be a duet album. We acknowledged that to each other on many occasions, and said to ourselves, ‘What took us so long?!!'”
The pair will embark on a tour in support of their project throughout June and July, pausing to re-team with fellow Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks for the band’s appearance at July’s Classic East and Classic West festivals in New York City and Los Angeles.
