Lindsey Buckingham News Roundup


Lindsey Buckingham has announced his first new solo set in a decade, a 30-date fall solo tour, with the news of his divorce hitting the press all in the same day.

Buckingham will release his self-titled collection on September 17th, with the album's first single, "I Don’t Mind," now available. The album marks his first new music since the 2017 Lindsey Buckingham – Christine McVie album.

Lindsey Buckingham said of the new single: "'I Don't Mind,' like many of the songs on my 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. This song celebrates that spirit and discipline."

The ousted Fleetwood Mac guitarist's road dates kick off on September 1st at Milwaukee's Pabst Theater and run through December 20th when the tour wraps in Boulder at the Boulder Theater.

Lindsey Buckingham and his wife Kristen Messner Buckingham, have reportedly split. TMZ reported Kristen filed legal documents in L.A. county to end the marriage. Lindsey and Kristen have been married since 2000 and have three children — William, aged 21; Leelee, 20; and Stella, 17.

Lindsey Buckingham told us that in terms of his songs, he considers himself to be more of a record maker than a conventional songwriter: ["I do not necessarily consider myself to never a 'writer' in the sense that say, Burt Bacharach is a writer, where he sits down at a piano and comes up with a complete melody and Hal David comes up with a complete set of lyrics — and that's it — y'know, the song stands on its own. But my whole. . .  the way that I look at myself is that I am not a writer in that sense. I am a stylist."] SOUNDCUE (:25 OC: . . . am a stylist)

The tracklisting to Lindsey Buckingham is: "Scream," "I Don't Mind," "On The Wrong Side," "Swan Song," "Blind Love," "Time," "Blue Light," "Power Down," "Santa Rosa," and "Dancing."
