Listen To Lindsey Buckingham’s ‘On The Wrong Side’
Lindsey Buckingham has released On The Wrong Side, the second track from his forthcoming self-titled solo record due out 17 September on Reprise. The song follows the news of Buckingham’s first solo album in over a decade which was announced alongside a run of fall North American tour dates, as well as “I Don’t Mind”, the album’s first single which was met with critical praise.
On the Wrong Side is about the peaks and valleys of life on the road with Fleetwood Mac, and sports one of the album’s most thought-provoking lyric: “We were young, now we’re old / Who can tell me which is worse?” Buckingham says the song evokes “Go Your Own Way,” in that it’s “not a happy song, subject-matter wise, but it was an ebullient song musically. This was sort of the same idea.” You can hear the song below.
Lindsey Buckingham is the artists his first solo release since 2011’s Seeds We Sow and follows his departure from Fleetwood Mac. As with the seven studio and three live albums he has released as a solo artist beginning with 1981’s Law and Order, the new project showcases Buckingham’s instinct for melody and his singular fingerpicking guitar style, reaffirming his status as one of the most inventive and electrifying musicians of his generation.
Written, produced and recorded by Buckingham at his home studio in Los Angeles, CA, the album will be released via vinyl, CD and on all digital and streaming services. A limited edition blue vinyl version is also available for pre-order via Lindsey Buckingham’s official website.
