One of my favorites! But now I’m like “Did You Miss” who?

Of course he is able to zero in on something like that very quickly.

This songs deserves repeat listens...
It’s hard not to apply the lyrics to the situation, as we know the. I imagine all the songs will be that way.

OTOH I think the chorus lyrics weeping willow on my pillow and broken arrow straight and narrow are rather silly, even if I can find meaning in them.

But that's always my favorite part about his lyrics! You can find a deep meaning in Holiday Road if you want... "I found out long ago it's a long way down the Holiday Road". One of the reasons i'm such a fan. There is a level of humility in it; not right there on the surface. Spend some time with it, and you may get something great out of it!

New piece in Rolling Stone about the album and tour.

This is interesting, in view of other reports (see the TMZ thread):

“‘I Don’t Mind’, like many of the songs on my new album, is about the challenges couples face in long-term relationships,” Buckingham says. “Over time, two people inevitably find the need to augment their initial dynamic with one of flexibility, an acceptance of each others’ flaws, and a willingness to continually work on issues; it is the essence of a good long-term relationship. This song celebrates that spirit and discipline.”

“ I Don’t Mind” is signature Lindsey Buckingham. It again reminds me how he is the genius behind many of Fleetwood Mac’s hits….this song could have been a great band track. I’m anxious to hear more of the songs. I’m curious about “On the Wrong Side” I would be surprised if it’s not his 1994 recording from the “With Honors” soundtrack.

I like the song (very much) but I’m not surprised by the song.

And it’s no Did You Miss Me!

I hope not but ... it’s a song that deserves its day in the sun so I’m cool if it is. I just hope it’s not a less-good version like SWS version of SSS smh

ETA: I love the song now lol

reminds me a lot of BuckVie.

Wish the vocals were less breathy and more straightforward.

Classic late-career Buck. Glad he's finally putting it out.

That said, the graphic design of the website sucks. Sorry, but whoever did it should be fired.

The former Fleetwood Mac star will release his self-titled follow-up to 2011's 'Seeds We Sow' on September 17.

Lindsey has given fans a taste of what's to come with the release of the lead single, 'I Don't Mind', which is about "the challenges couples face in long-term relationships".

In a press release, he explained: “Over time, two people inevitably find the need to augment their initial dynamic with one of flexibility, an acceptance of each others’ flaws and a willingness to continually work on issues; it is the essence of a good long term relationship. This song celebrates that spirit and discipline.”


The 10-track record also includes a cover of folk group The Pozo-Seco Singers' classic 'Time', which he'd been planning to put his own spin on for years.

On his intention for the LP, he said: “I wanted to make a pop album, but I also wanted to make stops along the way with songs that resemble art more than pop.

“As you age, hopefully you keep getting a little more grounded in the craft of what you’re doing. For me, getting older has probably helped to reinforce the innocence and the idealism that hopefully was always there.”


Lindsey sold his entire music catalogue to Hipgnosis Songs Fund earlier this year.

Previously, the investment company had a 25 per cent share of the seminal musician’s catalogue, but the firm secured music publishing and songwriting rights for all 161 of his songs, including some he co-wrote during his time in the 'Dreams' group.

What's more, Hipgnosis will also claim a 50 per cent share in any future releases by the 71-year-old songwriter.

As a solo artist, Lindsey - who was fired from Fleetwood Mac in 2018 - has released six solo albums and three live albums, with his eponymous effort marking his seventh full-length release.

In a statement about the acquisition, he said: “I was pleased to find a kindred spirit, someone who’s a big fan of my work in Fleetwood Mac, and an even bigger fan of my solo efforts.

“I look forward to working with Merck and the whole Hipgnosis team going into the future, and am confident that my body of work will be curated with great heart and insight."

Meanwhile, Lindsey is set to embark on a 30-city 2021 US tour, his first shows since undergoing life-saving open-heart surgery in 2019.

The run kicks off at Milwaukee’s Pabst Theatre on September 1.

Tickets go on sale June 11 at 10am local time. Head to www.lindseybuckingham.com for the full tour dates and ticket information.

why is the album no longer called Blue Light??

Here's the original song Time that he covers:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UARjviT6UKw

Time (Singers: The Pozo-Seco Singers)

Some people run, some people crawl
Some people don't even move at all
Some roads lead forward, some roads lead back
Some roads are bathed in light, some wrapped in fearful black

Time, oh time, where did you go?
Time, oh good, good time, where did you go?

Some people never get, some never give
Some people never die, and some never live
Some folks treat me mean, some treat me kind
Most folks just go their way, don't pay me any mind

Time, oh time, where did you go?
Time, oh good, good time, where did you go?

Sometimes I'm satisfied, sometimes I'm not
Sometimes my face is cold, sometimes it's hot
Sunset, I laugh
Sunrise, I cry
At midnight, I'm in between and wondering why

Time, oh time, where did you go?
Time, oh good, good time, where did you go?

I was sincerely hoping he was going to cover Fry and Laurie:

Does anyone remember when we first got word of a new album in the works? It's been so long, I can't remember how far back this started. Before Buckingham McVie?!

i think it was during Buckingham McVie tour. Lindsey was supposed to originally tour new album in 2018, and he was saying towards the end of 2017 that he has both new album in the can as well as best of box set. eventually he and record co decided to release box set first. he was talking to fans at m&gs in the fall of 2018 that the new album is basically done.

I liked the song on first listen and enjoyed the guitar sound which did remind me of Tango era or BuckVie. However I was hoping for a sound we haven't heard from him before. Shock me with something like Tusk when I first heard that in 1979. Show me what you can do that is different than you've done before. Seriously, I was totally expecting him to close out the song with the riff from I'm So Afraid because this song was so predictable.
