Neil Finn teamed up with his Fleetwood Mac bandmates Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie to release the charity single: "Find Your Way Back Home."

The release benefits Auckland City Mission, a homeless shelter based in Finn's homeland of New Zealand, which will soon celebrate the 100th anniversary since its founding. 

“There are all these people in all of our lives, I think, that we drift away from," Finn shared to the New Zealand Herald of the song's inspiration. “There was a story there, that was a connection that I made. It just puts it in your backyard. I live in a pretty fortunate situation, and I move in circles that are not in daily contact with homeless people. So, it's good to be able to find a pathway in your head to relate to some degree.”

Featuring Nicks' vocals and McVie's co-writing credits, "Find Your Way Back Home" became a team venture while Finn was on the road with Fleetwood Mac. “I guess I had every incentive to make sure that the words were evocative, simple, relatable, truthful and not crass or message-y,” he said. “It’s easy to be nebulous and abstract, and I'm quite good at that in my songs generally. So, to be direct in a way is a real challenge."

Nicks shared that she was "honored to be a part of Neil's song for the Auckland City Mission. He is on a mission to make this work, and I think this beautiful song he has written will certainly help.”
