Lindsey Buckingham is breaking his silence with a new album.
The legendary former Fleetwood Mac guitarist will issue a self-titled studio record on Sept. 17, his first since 2011's Seeds We Sow. The album, his seventh, was written, produced and recorded by Buckingham in his Los Angeles studio.
Lead single "I Don't Mind" - and indeed, much of the album - was described by the musician in a statement as a song "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." Lindsey Buckingham also includes a cover among its 10 tracks: a take on The Pozo-Seco Singers' folk-rock hit "Time."
Buckingham will hit the road in support of the new album, with 30 dates through America planned in September and December. Tickets will go on sale Friday, June 11 at 10 a.m. local time. All dates are listed below.
It's been a whirlwind few years for Buckingham ever since exiting Fleetwood Mac a second time in 2018. Less than a year later, he underwent life-saving emergency open heart surgery that, at the time, was reported to have caused some vocal cord damage. His iconic guitar playing was heard on songs by The Killers and Brandy Clark in 2020 and 2021; drummer Mick Fleetwood also revealed a reconciliation between the two during lockdown.
