"Boy George keen on Stevie Nicks duet after sharing Fleetwood Mac-inspired track"

Boy George has shared a new track inspired by Fleetwood Mac’s Albatross.

The song, which shares its title with the group’s 1968 instrumental recording, features George singing over the guitar-based tune and is available on his YouTube channel.

Revealing his inspiration for the track, he wrote: “I had this idea while driving in Los Angeles about fours [sic] ago and I just decided to sing over this classic.

“This is a cover of the Fleetwood Mac classic which I always felt was a slow blues jam.”

Taking to Twitter to share the song with fans, George explained he re-recorded the music for his cover and mused a duet with the band’s frontwoman Stevie Nicks.

“You understand I have written over this classic instrumental by Fleetwood Mac,” penned the Culture Cub star.

“Although we recreated the music. When I hear a beautiful landscape I just get carried away.”

He added: “I wonder what @StevieNicks will think. She could join me on vocals!”

It could have turned out far worse than it actually did. That being said, some songs are best left as instrumentals.

This makes me really want to hurt him in memory of Peter.

Oh, horrible. I have two Youtube accounts so I gave it two "dislikes."

The mentioning of Stevie Nicks is merely advertising -- as the most popular member of the band, she gets more searches and likes than anyone else (a lot more than Peter Green, certainly).
