Lindsey Buckingham – “I Don’t Mind”

Lindsey Buckingham – “I Don’t Mind”

In 2018, Fleetwood Mac made headlines when they publicly fired Lindsey Buckingham — one more twist in a decades-long band history that’s always been full of drama. Since then, things have been eventful for Buckhingham. He’s sued his ex-bandmates. He’s recovered from open-heart surgery. He’s appeared on the Killers’ single “Caution.” He’s reconnected with Mick Fleetwood, who now says that Buckingham could eventually return to the Fleetwood Mac fold. And now Buckingham has announced that he’ll release a new solo album and head out on tour this fall.

Buckingham’s new LP is self-titled, and it’s his first fully solo album since 2011’s Seeds We Sow. (Buckingham and then-bandmate Christie McVie also released a collaborative album in 2017.) The first single from Lindsey Buckingham is a lovely folk-rock reverie. Like so many Buckingham songs, “I Don’t Mind” manages to be soft and hard at once. It’s got a driving beat and a riff that sounds like a harpsichord but might just be Buckingham’s own fingerpicked guitar.

Talking about the song, Buckingham says:

“I Don’t Mind,” like many of the songs on my new album, is about the challenges couples face in long-term relationships. Over time, two people inevitably find the need to augment their initial dynamic with one of flexibility, an acceptance of each others’ flaws and a willingness to continually work on issues; it is the essence of a good long term relationship. This song celebrates that spirit and discipline.
