Fleetwood Mac Tribute Album to Include MGMT, Best Coast, Lykke Li
Seventeen tracks worth of Fleetwood Mac covers by the likes of MGMT, The Kills, Best Coast, Lykke Li, Craig Wedren with St. Vincent, and The New Pornographers are set to be released as Tell Me That You Want Me: A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac on Aug. 14 on Hear Music/Concord.
Randall Poster and Gelya Robb produced the album; their previous work on a Buddy Holly tribute album garnered them a Grammy nomination. Randall got involved because he is a fan of Fleetwood Mac.
“The story of Fleetwood Mac has always intrigued me,” Poster says in a press release. “We’ve tried to tell that story through the arc of music we’ve recorded. Working with some of our favorite artists and performers, the magical musical legacy of Fleetwood Mac shows itself to be alive and well.”
A stream of The New Pornographer’s rendition of “Think About Me” is available at Pitchfork.
Best Coast did a cover of “Storms,” but that is separate from their contribution to this album.
