Fleetwood Mac Tribute Album to Feature Billy Gibbons, Marianne Faithful, + More
Fleetwood Mac will be the subject of a new tribute album coming Aug. 14. Direct Current reports that the still-untitled set was produced by Randall Poster, who previously helmed the Buddy Holly tribute collection, 'Rave On.'
While most of the acts taking part fall on the indie side, there is a little love from the classic rock community. ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons takes on the Fleetwood Mac track 'Oh Well,' while '60s favorite Marianne Faithful gives a heartwarming take on 'Angel.'
Other top acts on the disc include Best Coast, who cover 'Rihannon,' MGMT, who take on 'Future Games,' the Kills, who do 'Dreams,' and Lykke Li, who gets to offer a fresh performance of 'Silver Springs.'
The set also features the unique pairing of Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo and Dinosaur Jr.'s J. Mascis on 'Albatross.'
The still untitled Fleetwood Mac collection arrives via Hear Music/Concord on Aug. 14.
