Gift of Screws due out on September 16/08

Lindsay Buckingham (independent singer-songwriter, as well as the artistic main man of Fleetwood Mac) will be releasing his album, Gift of Screws on Reprise Records, September 16, 2008. He hopes to begin an American tour (with two Ontario stops, October 7th and 8th) to accompany the album's release.

Buckingham says of the album,
I'd say this album distills several periods of time. It has false starts to make albums, songs that go back a number of years that took a while to find a home, and brand-new songs. I wanted to bring it all together in one place. As an artist I'm still, for better or worse, clinging to my idealism and to my sense that there is still much to be said. This album is a culmination of that.

Buckingham's latest offering is more rock n' roll than his acoustic driven Under the Skin. In some ways it's also an extension of his Fleetwood Mac legacy as Mick Fleetwood and John McVie played on the album, providing the unmistakable foundation for several songs, including standout, Wait for You.

Gift of Screws was produced by Buckingham, with the exception of two songs - Wait For You and Gift of Screws which were co-produced by Rob Cavallo (Green Day, Jewel, Dave Matthews Band).
