Lindsey Buckingham to Tour Behind New Album This Fall
For Lindsey Buckingham fans, we have some big news. You will not only have a chance to see him live on his upcoming fall tour. He is also about to release a new solo album.
“Seeds We Sow, Buckingham’s sixth solo album, will be released September 6, 2011. It is the first self-release from Lindsey, who definitely took a total do-it-yourself-approach. He wrote and performed every song as well as did the mixing and producing.
A 31 city tour of North America has also been announced to support Buckingham’s new album. The outing will kick off in Nevada on September 9 and wrap up in Napa, CA on October 25.
Buckingham said about the new set, it could be my best work ever. I think it really represents what I do and shows a certain level of musicianship and maturity. I think I have many tools from my musical vocabulary that I can draw on which are a result of choice I have made. The album was done on my terms. It is coming from inside out. I really hope that I don’t ever stop doing that.
The album helps to showcase the full arsenal of Buckingham’s skills, from “In Our Own Time,” the first single, to the melodic, soft “End of time” to “One Take,” the most rocking track on the set, to “When She Comes Down,” a very touching number, to “She Smiles Sweetly,” the gorgeous, lullaby-like closing number. The set shows off a more mature guitar style and refined lyrics. A standout track is “Illumination.” Buckingham said, I think over the years my lyrics have gotten better. They aren’t more obscure, they are more poetic I think in how I create them. Even to me the process is mysterious.
