Former Fleetwood Mac guitarist/singer Lindsey Buckingham announced he’s releasing a self-titled LP on Sept. 17, sharing the first single ahead of the set, “I Don’t Mind,” today. It’s his first solo album in a decade.
Additionally, Buckingham disclosed dates for a tour to launch on Sept. 1 in Milwaukee and will run through Dec. 20, concluding at a stop in Boulder, Colorado.
“‘I Don’t Mind,’ like many of the songs on the new album, is about the challenges couples face in long-term relationships. 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,” Buckingham said of the song in a statement.” This song celebrates that spirit and discipline.”
Buckingham has released seven studio and three live albums as a solo artist beginning with 1981’s Law and Order. The new record was produced and recorded by Buckingham at his home studio in Los Angeles.
Lindsey Buckingham is his first solo release since 2011’s Seeds We Sow and follows his departure from Fleetwood Mac in 2018, which saw him replaced by Crowded House’s Neil Finn and Tom Petty guitarist Mike Campbell. Last year, Buckingham surfaced on TikTok following the viral “Dreams” moment. Perhaps more enticing for Fleetwood Mac fans, the guitarist and Mick Fleetwood seemed to bury the hatchet surrounding his departure from the band, which could lead to another reunion tour. But until then, this will suffice.
The album will be released via vinyl, CD and on all digital and streaming services. A limited-edition blue vinyl version is also available for pre-order.
