"Everything on the record is me, for better or worse," says Lindsey Buckingham of his new self-titled album that will be out in just a couple weeks (pre-order it on vinyl). He's just shared a new track from it, the hooky and distinctly Buckingham-esque "Scream," which opens the album.
"Many of the songs on this album are about the work and discipline it takes in maintaining a long-term relationship," Lindsey says. "Some of them are more about the discipline and some of them are more about the perks. 'Scream' is about the perks. It felt very celebratory and it was also very, very simple and short. To the point. It didn’t evolve into some huge thing. It made its case and got the hell out. It just seemed like a good place to start the album, somehow. It’s very upbeat and very optimistic and very positive. It’s a celebration of an aspect of life."
