Here at KCRW we are all abuzz about a ‘why hasn’t this already been done before’ compilation – featuring the who’s who of indie rock covering Fleetwood Mac classics. The album, titled, “Just Tell Me That You Want Me”, is set for an August release and showcases covers from some of our favorite artists: Best Coast, St. Vincent, MGMT and Tame Impala among others.
One of the standout tracks is courtesy of Antony Hegerty, of Antony and the Johnsons. If you aren’t familiar with his work, one only needs to hear a few measures of his voice to realize he was the perfect fit for the 1975, timeless standout – “Landslide”.
His voice is arresting, polarizing and has an almost operatic quality that delivers this emotional classic to near perfection.
Listen for yourself and keep your eyes peeled for the August 14 release of this tribute album via Concord Music Group.
