I pre-ordered the CD...I hope it sells a million copies!ReplyDelete
This will be the first release from any of them I won't be buying. I will buy seats for the final performances next year.Delete
What is an OEI pre-sale?ReplyDelete
what about the rest of the worldReplyDelete
Thanks for posting this awesome information!!!!!!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
will be great to hear some new music instead of the same old same stuff someone keeps going on the road with, thanks lindsey and chris for caring enough about the fan's to create new music at least its still about the music and the fans for you two!ReplyDelete
It would be lovely to have some tour dates in the UK in smaller, more intimate venues. Hope you can squeeze in a few as well as doing the big venues!ReplyDelete
Hope that you'll be adding some tour dates in the UK and it would be amazing if a few of the venues could be smaller, more intimate gigs! Looking forward to getting a heads up if any UK gigs are planned.ReplyDelete
Get real. This won't cross any oceans. There is no payday in this iteration on any front. Sales, tickets, or merchandising. They will probably be on a bus. The only way that will happen is out of their own charity. This is at most a break even outing. Even with Mick & John cast out.Delete
Fleetwood Mac never came to Portugal, maybe the both can visit us...ReplyDelete
Meh, definitely NOT blown away by "In My World."ReplyDelete
Hope the album is more "heavy" like "Say you will" and not so ... 70s sounding...
Just listened to IN MY WORLD. Kind of disappointed to be honest. Typical Lindsey ditty. I thought it would be much more hooky and special. But the BIG disappointment is that YOU CAN'T HEAR CHRISTINE! Why announce a duets album and then release a lead single that's not a duet? Especially since the suspense here is all about having Christine back into the fold after such a long time. What were they thinking!!!!!ReplyDelete
I hope Atlantic has still not finalized the song selection. Lindsey is an awesome guitarist but the man cannot sing. Never could. They need to focus on CM. She is what the fan base has been missing. The album will be fine with 3 from him. That's all I could ever takeDelete
Too late. This fate is sealed & ship is sailing for better or worse. At least it's new! Tour 2018 will be the grande show.Delete
So far, totally uninspired by the new CD. The key art is boring, and the first single is pure Lindsey at his quirky best. So far, nothing says this is a collaboration. They aren't even touching on the cover photo, and where's is Christine's smokey vocals on the first single? Maybe Stevie was right about skipping this one; doesn't seem even remotely like a Mac attack.ReplyDelete
I agree! Are Christine's vocals even on In My World because I sure don't hear them!ReplyDelete
Its a duets album in the sense that they both infused ideas and Christine's case, words and music to Lindsey Buckingham material. I would dread the album if they each sang on EVERY SONG. "In My World" was written by both Christine and Lindsey. I'm totally happy with the song. And the LP is called Lindsey Buckingham/Christine Mcvie. Wow you haven't heard the entire album yet, it's pure FLEETWOOD Mac!ReplyDelete
A Fleetwood Mac song would have Christine singing on the chorus, or at least on the floating harmonies in the background. Has Lindsey lost his mind? As a longtime fan, I'm both disappointed and peeved. All this waiting for a Lindsey solo single? Thanks but no thanks.ReplyDelete
As a long time fan - I now agree with a final tour and gracefully taking that final bow. They need to stop. Keep their iconic status in check and end it. Say You Will was an awesome effort and a dignified body of work despite the loss of Chris at the time. They still have it live and a huge catalogue they can dig in for some fresh and final performances.Delete
First there was the awful disappointment that Stevie wouldn't participating, now that disappointment is compounded by a lead single without Christine on vocals. I'm seriously questioning Lindsey and the band's judgement at this point.ReplyDelete
Maybe Christine is singing backup vocals - Christine sounds just like Lindsey when they sing World Turning.ReplyDelete
Do Mick Fleetwood and John Mc Vie play on In My World???????
In my world is a good song but I'll admit that I think In my world would sound better if Christine Mc Vie sang lead vocals and Lindsey sang background vocalsReplyDelete
The last thing any of these songs need is LB singing lead.Delete
I do love "In My World." I also realize Lindsey and Christine aren't going to trade off verses on every single track; that's unrealistic and would make the record seem not as genuine. However, when you have Christine back in the studio after so long, it would make sense the lead single would actually be a song where they trade off ... I'm just saying.ReplyDelete
Thanks to the two last anonymous users for their great contribution. That being said, 'In My World' has 'no hit' written all over it...ReplyDelete
I saw on one of the sites (news media) where there was a track listing and after every song, listed who wrote the song,and of course that makes it helpful because we don't have liner notes right now! in my world was written by Buckingham McVie. I'm guessing it's the song Lindsay was talking about that he gave her and she wrote words over it. I think In My World is that song. I feel that there is going to be Harmony singing on some of the tracks where that the writers the two musicians felt that it needed that. but I also feel it's going to have a song to where each person sings it all by themselves and does their own Harmony. Look for the track listing.it's one of them that announces the record, and it tells you who wrote what. And all I know from what I read was that in my world is a Buckingham McVie track they both added something to that track. And because it's the first single I'm sure they wanted it to be quick and fast and very very pop -driven. I think we're going to get a little bit of everything on this record.there's only 10 songs which was really for me the only surprise I thought with Lindsay on there they would be at least 14 or 15. And on this track I think Lindsay's vocals are excellent comma and yes Mick Fleetwood and John McVie are the Rhythm Section for the entire album although from what I understand they will not be touring as Rhythm Section. They are signed with Atlantic Records for this album, it's not put out by themselves so maybe the record company made them release this track comma but I wish everyone would not judge the whole album on the one track myself love it, it's wonderful!ReplyDelete
The listing of songs and writers is listed on the Lindsey Buckingham/ Christine Mcvie wikepedia,Christine is deeply involved.ReplyDelete
Here's what Wikipedia says:ReplyDelete
1. "Sleeping Around the Corner" Lindsey Buckingham
2. "Feel About You" Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham
3. "In My World" Buckingham
4. "Red Sun" McVie, Buckingham
5. "Love Is Here to Stay" Buckingham
6. "Too Far Gone" McVie, Buckingham
7. "Lay Down for Free" Buckingham
8. "Game of Pretend" McVie
9. "On with the Show" Buckingham
10. "Carnival Begin" McVie
Another Lindsey Buckingham CD with guest appearance.Delete
I also looked at the track listing and 'In My World' is (as you'd expect) a Lindsey solo composition.ReplyDelete
I think the only way to know who contributed what is to have liner notes. It's a great song, how fortunate we are. They are healthy, creative, and I love it.ReplyDelete
It is really amazing how ill willed almost everyone on this site is. Look at youtube and see how well received the song is there. I think it is catchy and it is just one out of ten. On amazon you can see on the photographs who wrote what and it is indeed a collaboration of them both. It seems this site is firm in the hands of the Stevie fan base who want the album to be a failure without knowing it. I love Stevies work, but man has she far worse songs on her catalogue...ReplyDelete
She has her share of clunkers but this is an entire CD of unlistenables except Carnival BeginDelete
Delicious. I love this tune. It has all the hallmarks of both writers and their penchant for minty-fresh melodies with subtle layers of sophisticated sharp-angled chord changes. Both their work can seem deceivingly simple but this has more than enough rewarding texture and lyric here. Aurally lush and rich. This is simply one tune from a whole album that no one has heard yet. Chill out people. I doubt their eyes are on selling millions. They’ve been there and done that. The only albums that sell these days are mindless dance-related material that is mindless interchangeable with the next. Bring on the quirkiness Lindsey. I hope it gets weirder even. (thrilled we don’t have to hear same old lyrics taken from dusty old songs from the missing member here. Yawn.)ReplyDelete
Do you people really want to hear an album where they each sing 50/50 like a couple of bobbsey-twins on every effing-song? Then you have no knowledge of what they are like as artists who follow their muse. You all want to go back in time to some comfort zone that spoon-feeds you classic rock formulaic pap. Have some faith that these two have put out something they love.
Not loving the album cover as much as I would like, but I’m soaking in this new tune and happy to hear it.
I'm glad that the band has its defenders but those of us who aren't thrilled with this song have a right to express our honest opinions without being condescended to. If I want to hear PR-speak I can wait for the liner notes. This is a major disappointment that can't be redeemed by creative writing.ReplyDelete
This band has always been about the alchemy, almagamation and ear candy of the 3 vocalists in the mix of an unparalleled & awesome musical rythym section, keyboard and guitars. None of them have successfully carried an entire album independently. Nicks was able to accomplish the solo body of work due to her amazing song writing, her allure and her gift of a natural and totally unique stage presence. She worked with the industries best musicians and a very supportive fan base and complete label support. All that being said for any FM CD past or future it will take all 3 vocalists to accomplish their signature sound. This has little chance of being any more than another "Extended Play" with 10 tracks.Delete
I am devastated. This is just a Lindsey Buckingham solo song. There is no Fleetwood Mac in this.ReplyDelete
If at least 3 of Lindsey's Buckingham Mc Vie songs are as good as the three songs Lindsey recorded with Mick Fleetwood on his solo album Gift of Screws ... I will more than Happy and I look forward to hearing those brilliant songs June 9th!!ReplyDelete
Good effing lord. I just listened to this. I'm speechless. Shocked actually. Someone in this organization needs to put a lid on his garbage. Now I know why Ms. Nicks said No!!!!!!! This is in my opinion another solo effort with CM as a musical guest.ReplyDelete
I love hearing John and Mick jamming on In My World...ReplyDelete
In My World will sound even better listening to it on CD or album.
Brand New (Fleetwood Mac) album.... June 9th 2017
It is NOT a joint composition, but a solo one. And I am also hoping for some great other LB tracks on this album. Didn't like Seeds We Sow much and this song would unfortunately fit right in there.ReplyDelete
wow I cant believe all the lindsey bashing! the cd has not even come out yet and already people are bashing it and him! first of all the new song is great maybe not everyone taste but its a great song, Lindsey is the main reason this band is still together, and he and chris are trying the give the fans what they want new music and if they think this cd is good enough to put out im sure it is great and already pre ordered mine, lindsey and chris are trying to create music and give the fans something new to look forward too unlike stevie who does nothing but whine about the fact that she doesn't get a million dollar check in the mail every week like she did when rumours came out!and how no one buys cds anymore and couldn't care less about the fans and what they want, lindsey and chris never mention cd sales or money they just talk about how they want to make new music and play it for the fans and im sure this cd is there way of telling the fans they care and hope we will like it and know they are trying there best, dont blame them because stevie is spoiled and selfish and only cares about the money, she will have no problem playing with them in july because it will be another big pay day for her and i am sure already it will be the same old same old set list no changes at least in her part of the set, but i am hoping lindsey and chris do something new at least either way dont bash them they are trying and making effort for the fans if you dont like the song thats fine dont like it dont buy it but dont bash it they are the only thing keeping this band together these days so if you cant say anything nice dont say anything.ReplyDelete
Christine Mc Vie wrote two new songs by herself - three new songs Lindsey and all have Mick Fleetwood and John Mc Vie adding their talent to the songs... that is the Fleetwood Mac I love.ReplyDelete
Lindsey Buckingham is a damn good song writer and producer. Lindsey playing his new songs with Mick, John and Christine will sound great too.
Providing he leaves the vocals to Chris. This longtime FM loyalist cannot stand listening to him scream and attempt to sing any longer. 2 exceptions 1. I'm So Afraid. 2. GYOW.Delete
I think it's a great song. Nothing ground breaking but a solid Buckingham track.ReplyDelete
Sounds a lot like the songs he recently did with Empire of the Sun.
He's pushing 70 -- kind of amazing that he's still churning out innovative modern sounding music.
Love the song, love the production and the recording sounds great, but...ReplyDelete
Why would they lead off the promotion for a duet album and tour with a song that doesn't include half of the duo? The only McVie I hear is John. How long would it take to add Christine's harmonies to this? One hour? Thirty minutes? When the world is waiting to hear new Christine McVie music, this seems like an odd and counter-productive choice.
Labels are an odd thing. Here is something to ponder:
In My World: Lindsey+Mick+John= Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie
Come: Lindsey+Mick+John = Fleetwood Mac
Gift Of Screws: Lindsey+Mick+John = Lindsey Buckingham
Songbird: Christine+Lindsey = Fleetwood Mac
Shadow Of The West: Lindsey+Christine = Lindsey Buckingham
It's an awesome song. Lindsey is almost 69, Chris will be 74 in July. They make the decisions believe you me about whose voice sounds best where. I think all the people that are blasting Lindsey will be completely astounded at the album as a whole. They have written much more than this but put 10 songs out. Lindsey Buckingham is the finest arranger out there, I hear a few bites from Chris's keys at the end of the song. Sleeping around the corner is an awesome song as it was a bonus track on seeds we sew. But it was to mainstream sounding they pulled it as a bonus track. I don't understand the Lindsey Badging! What an awkward position stevie put her band mates in. Praise then, doubt bash them, it's Fleetwood Mac....majical!ReplyDelete
It's called noiseDelete
Stevie and Chris gave Fleetwood Mac a sell out two year tour. They will again. This band is amazing considering their ages and tenure in popular culture. In some ways they are more popular today then they have ever been. Young fans are coming out to FM & SN concerts. Stevie's recent outing was shocking in terms of stage lighting, content and massive sellout arena shows. Of course The Pretenders offered up a great double bill. Anyway let's move away from bashing Chris, LB & Stevie. They will do as they please and we all know they will be great. Just wait & see. They have not been relevent this long for no reason.ReplyDelete
I am surprised there is only 9 new songs...ReplyDelete
Hopefully Christine and Lindsey have more songs that could be finished quickly if another person agrees to find a way to participate.
"Hopes Springs Eternal"
Feel about You sounds like a Lindsey Buckingham pop song influenced by the 1950's sung by Christine Mc Vie... So far I can why this album is not a Fleetwood Mac albumReplyDelete
Christine influenced the song greatly, and if you are listening to layers, it's a very clever little song, lots of stuff going on! Chris's voice has not changed at all. I disagree that it doesn't sound like a Fleetwood Mac album, it has been 31 years since we heard a Fleetwood Mac album, maybe we forgot. God maybe Grace Slick is right that people over 50 should do jazz and other types of music and GET THE HELL OFF THE ROCK STAGE! the more it gets run downI need it...... my Christine is Back! keep your ears open for a couple of rockers.......ReplyDelete
Grace Slick would gladly pop her fat ass on stage if anyone could bare to listen to her let alone look at her. But no one is going to pay for that torture. Sorry Grace. You had your day. But you just fell apart.Delete
Initially I thought Stevie's refusal to join the new album was her usual attempt to create drama to drum up interest but after hearing the first 2 songs it's clear she wisely decided to stay away from this dreck...the first 2 songs are basically awful. she's right. the days of them producing great new music are past so just focus on what we all luv. that being said "in your dreams" was worth the effort in my humble opinion...24 Karat not so much.ReplyDelete
Christine is fantastic. I'm really grateful she re-entered the band. I agree Lindsey is a talented arranger and guitarist. But he just cannot carry an album. Maybe Chris can pull this heap. But I'm just waiting for the tour finale! Doubtful I could sit through 2 hours of his caterwauling peppered by a few CM songs.Delete
OMG I call that statement really courageous, just tell everyone here on this site how you personally talked to Stevie and how she let you in on her thoughts and plans...simply ridiculous!Delete
Awesome. Love the new song too! I know the negative energy is missing for you trolls. So bye bye.ReplyDelete
Bleh! What a disappointment. I guess I was hoping for more of a FM sound. This is just LB dreckDelete
Well said ^^^ :)ReplyDelete
I'm just wondering how some people get from Stevie saying that new Lindsey and Chris music is great that she thought it was awful?ReplyDelete
The song is a simple song for these guys,at first glance. BUT,what they do with all the textured layers, the more i listen I hear more. And what John is doing on bass just may blowout any expensive speaker system, he is wailing on that bass! To call it good is an understatement!ReplyDelete
Love love love the second single! Well done, what a fresh sound and lovely to hear Christines voice on a new track. Can t wait for tve album. In the second teaser an youtube Red Sun and Sleeping round the corner sound great too.ReplyDelete
I noticed the snippets of Red Sun and sleeping around the corner on the YouTube promo. I think this whole thing was recorded!ReplyDelete
Feel about You reminds me of Oh Diane and Caroline from Fleetwood Mac. Feel about You surprised me alot when I first heard it but after a few more listens I like it.ReplyDelete
Feel about You can easily be on repeat in your mind after you hear it a couple times.
