Default Neil Finn featuring Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie

This sounds really good. These three voices work well together. Where is Mick And John?

This was probably modern postal rock. Not being songwriters, Mick and John likely don’t have home recording equipment. Still, if there’s not another Fleetwood Mac album, at least we have an idea of where it might have gone.

I’d love to see a RSD release with this as the A side and Campbell’s “Lockdown” as the B side.

It's a very light radio sounding tune.
There's also another vocalist from New Zealand singing background too.
I think Christine's vocals at the end are the song's best embellishment.

I agree, Christine adds that little bit of magic to it(find your way). Reminds me of some of her Tusk backing vocals. I really like this.
Stevie sounds nasal, but not as bad as other songs.

Kinda bland but for a fundraising single not bad. Doesn't make me feel like I'm missing much by them all not doing an album together.

Stevie's vocal sounds an awful lot like her vocal on Leann Rimes "Borrowed".

Christine gets short shrift.

I get that Stevie is the bigger pop star and recognized name so he wants to leverage that. But I feel like Chris is lost in the mix and her part at the end is so faint it's easy to miss. I mentioned it to a friend who listened to it with me and they were "What Chris part at the end?" and even when I played it again they had a hard time hearing it.

Quite nice. Played it a few times without the visuals and it sounded okay.
Sounded better for some reason with the accompanying video (albeit its a fairly simple video).
Agree Christine adds something and should have played a more prominent role.

Just saw that Mike Campbell is on this, too. I’m guessing he played slide guitar.

He said something about it on Facebook. Also, he’s listed in the credits in the YouTube video.

Boring and Stevie sounds like she’s got a wad of cotton stuffed up her nose… Just awful.

The song itself is tolerable. Neil Finn is no slouch as a pop songwriter and it is for a good cause so I paid to download it. Stevie needs to retire .She can no longer sing and she is starting to remind me more and more of Baby Jane Hudson or Mae West in her dotage.

yeah she's said in interviews that a doctor told her he could put a mesh thing in her nose where the hole is to replace the missing cartilage, but that she told him "no I can't do that because what if it changes how I sound?" She might want to revisit that decision.

Having just watched Normal People...(twice)..yes I’m sad, I know!
I found the lyrics of this song quite moving, but that’s maybe just my mood at the moment.
Stevie’s voice however..
If she would quieten down a little, sing less in your face sort of, she wouldn’t sound so strident and flat.
I think her voice coach has a lot to answer for....
