MGMT, Best Coast + More on Deck for Fleetwood Mac Tribute Album
Fleetwood Mac will be the recipients of an impressive tribute album -- along with the likes of MGMT, Best Coast, the Kills and more -- covering the band's songs. Fans will get to experience the various interpretations of the British-American icons when the collection is released this fall.
Rolling Stone reports that the album, called 'Just Tell Me That You Want Me: A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac,' will be released on September 14. Other acts on the disc include the New Pornographers, ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, Lykke Li and more. The project is being produced by Randall Poster, who organized the Buddy Holly tribute record 'Rave On.' That collection featured the Black Keys, Fiona Apple, Modest Mouse and Paul McCartney.
As you can see by the track listing below, the songs covered span almost the entire Fleetwood Mac catalog. Eras include the Peter Green-led lineup, their 1977 commercial breakthrough 'Rumours,' the experimental follow-up 'Tusk' and their work in the '80s. Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo and Dinosaur Jr.'s J. Masci team up to give their take on the Green instrumental track 'Albatross.' Some of the artists on the tribute are no strangers to covering Fleetwood Mac songs. Listen to Best Coast's rendition of 'Storms' here.
