fleetwood mac Fleetwood Mac tribute album features MGMT, The Kills, Antony Hegarty, and more

Fleetwood Mac will be honored with a new covers album featuring MGMT, The Kills, Best Coast, Lykke Li, Antony Hegarty, The New Pornographers, Washed Out, and more, reports Direct Current. The untitled set was produced by Randall Poster, who previously handled the Buddy Holly tribute album Rave On... It will be released on August 14th via Hear Music/Concord.

Update: According to an issued press release, the compilation is titled Just Tell Me That You Want Me. You can stream The New Pornographers’ contribution, a take on “Think About Me”, at Pitchfork.

Direct Current adds that “each of the contributing artists had complete independent control over the style and vision for their songs. The result is a collection of often radically reworked versions of well-known (and some more obscure) Fleetwood Mac songs.”

Previously, Best Coast did a pretty great cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Storms”, and while that cover won’t be appearing on the new tribute album, you can revisit that performance underneath the tracklist.

Just Tell Me That You Want Me Tracklist:
01. Lee Ranaldo Band feat. J Mascis – Albatross
02. Antony – Landslide
03. Trixie Whitley – Before The Beginning
04. Billy Gibbons & Co. – Oh Well
05. Best Coast – Rhiannon
06. The New Pornographers – Think About Me
07. Marianne Faithfull – Angel
08. Lykke Li – Silver Springs
09. Karen Elson – Gold Dust Woman
10. Matt Sweeney And Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy – Storms
11. Washed Out – Straight Back
12. Tame Impala – That’s All For Everyone
13. Craig Wedren with St. Vincent – Sisters of the Moon
14. The Kills – Dreams
15. Gardens & Villa – Gypsy
16. The Crystal Ark – Tusk
17. MGMT – Future Games

Ryan Adam’s old band Whiskeytown does a sweet cover of Dreams. It’s on the Strangers Almanac [Deluxe Edition].

And here’s a cover that doesn’t need to be alongside Best Coast or the other bands:

This is what one of the most iconic bands of all times gets? This band smoked more weed, sniffed more coke, F’ed more people, drank more booze and wrote more immortal music than this collection of tards could DREAM to listen to! This is what they f’ing GET?! BOOOOOOOO!!!! J Mascis, for shame, get your name off this turd!

While not a big fan of MGMT I know they have good taste and knew they’d pick the best cover! Early 70s Mac by far the best! RIP Bob Welch.
