Lindsey Buckingham is known to have a strong hand in the studio on both Fleetwood Mac and his solo records

Lindsey Buckingham On His ‘Collaboration’ with Norah Jones

Lindsey Buckingham and Fleetwood Mac have been in the news lately, since announcing their upcoming 2013 tour. But Buckingham also has a pair of new songs out on the soundtrack to Judd Apatow’s latest film, This Is 40, in addition to a new solo live album,

One of the This Is 40 songs, “Brother And Sister,” is billed to Buckingham “featuring Norah Jones,” but the guitarist is quick to note that she wasn’t actually involved in the song’s creation.

“She’s not really a collaborator,” Buckingham tells CBS Local. “A lot of that wasn’t even something I was there for. I went in and I put the song together in the studio with Jon Brion, who produced the soundtrack. By the way, I have a lot of new-found respect for people who do this, it isn’t an easy task putting a set of original songs together for a movie.”

Jones was working on her own song for the film, “Always Judging,” and Brion recorded her doing some backing vocals for “Brother And Sister.” But Buckingham notes, “I wasn’t there when she did what she did on the song. I hadn’t even heard the final mixes yet.”

While Buckingham is known to have a strong hand in the studio on both Fleetwood Mac and his solo records, he was more laid-back in this situation. “They said they wanted to send me the mixes, and I said, ‘don’t worry about it. I’m sure they’re great,’ and I left it like that.’” 

Buckingham explains that his work on This Is 40 came about because he’s been friendly with Apatow for a while. “He asked if I had any stuff that he could use in a movie,” Buckingham says. “I always have rough ideas sitting around, so I said yeah. I went to his house. He had a list of ideas for subject matters for songs, things that would be useful within the context of the movie. ‘Brother And Sister,’ was actually something that was on his list. These two characters (Paul Rudd’s “Pete” and Leslie Mann’s “Debbie,” as first portrayed in Knocked Up) are living at a pivotal point in their marriage, where much of the initial romance has fallen away and they’re living as brother and sister.”

Buckingham’s other new song for the This Is 40 soundtrack is titled “Sick Of You” and appears alongside tracks from Graham Parker (who appears in the film), Paul McCartney and Paul Simon. The soundtrack is in stores now, and the film opens December 21st.

Video / Reviews: Lindsey Buckingham Performing Live at The Roxy in L.A

Lindsey Buckingham Performed at The Roxy in L.A. December 11th - During "This is 40" Listening Party

"He did four songs and absolutely tore it up.  Masterful vocals on “Go Insane” and brilliant fretwork on “Never Going Back Again” and “Big Love”.  One of the best four song sets I think I ever have heard."

Buckingham, introduced by the soundtrack’s producer Jon Brion,  reached transcendence in his remarkable four-song set. Giving a short bow to the audience before strapping on an electric guitar, Buckingham was fully engaged from the first note. He skipped his three songs on the “This Is 40” soundtrack —”Sick Of You”, “She Acts Like You and "Brother and Sister" — and instead played an extended, incendiary “Shut Us Down,” which appeared on Cameron Crowe’s “Elizabethtown” soundtrack. The sound man took a second to catch up, but by the time Buckingham eased into a menacing, sensual “Go Insane,” his guitar playing was crystal clear. That’s a good thing because there are few guitarists who can play with his precision, speed and melodicism. He gets more sound out of a guitar than most musicians do from a full band. A slowed-down, time-shifting, hypnotic “Never Going Back Again” followed before he wrapped with “Big Love.” He remarked on how when he originally wrote the song in 1987, the line “Looking out for love”  hinted at a sense of alienation. Now he sees the song as “a meditation on the power of change.”

Judd Apatow's upcoming movie "This is 40" soundtrack features THREE new tracks by Lindsey Buckingham.

"Brother & Sister" [ft. Norah Jones] 
"She Acts Like You"

And it appears Lindsey didn't produce himself.  His tracks along with Fiona Apple and Graham Parker were produced by Jon Brion. Which just makes me even more anxious to hear the new tunes.  Short wait for the release is a bonus!  The soundtrack will be released on December 11th, and movie arrives in theatres on December 21st.
