Covering a beloved band like Fleetwood Mac is a challenging feat for any band. There’s always the possibility of mangling a song held dear to so many. But there’s also the possibility of breathing new life into vintage tracks.
A collection of indie darlings, from The Kills to Gardens & Villa, are giving it a shot on Just Tell Me That You Want Me, a tribute album to Fleetwood Mac. Below, hear Lykke Li doing her take on the track “Silver Springs.”
Fact to Impress Your Friends With: ”Silver Springs,” written by Stevie Nicks, was intended to be on the classic album Rumours, but it was excluded from the album for time considerations. It was eventually released as a B-side to “Go Your Own Way.”
Just Tell Me That You Want Me is due out on August 14th, via Hear Music, which is a label run by Starbucks. If that hasn’t turned you off, you can hear six other tracks from the album over at Soundcloud, or pre-order the album (CD only) over at Amazon.
