Fleetwood Mac Tribute Album To Feature MGMT, The Kills, Best Coast + More

Written by Mike Hohnen on June 18, 2012

A tribute album set to pay homage to the amazing career of Fleetwood Mac is well into production, with a release date set for August 14. Being produced by Randall Poster, who worked behind the scenes on the Buddy Holly tribute album Roll on, has ensured that this particular tribute will set itself apart from the others.

Rather than following common convention and employing the use of similar bands from the same era as Fleetwood Mac, Poster has enlisted a series of young, relevant, buzzworthy artists such as MGMT covering Future Games, Best Coast covering Rhiannon, The New Pornographers on Think About Me and a whole lot more indie-infused renditions of Fleetwood classics.

What’s more, according to Direct Current Music website, the bands were given total creative sovereignty over their given song. The result of this is a series of “radically reworked versions of well-known (and some more obscure) Fleetwood Mac songs”.

Best Coast released an absolute gem of a Fleetwood Mac cover that didn’t make the cut for the album but made them an essential band to have on the official release. Check out the clip below the track list.
