Hangout Festival 2013 artist Delta Rae’s latest single features Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham. The video for the tune was debuted today online via Rolling Stone magazine. (watch below)
Rolling Stone’s been singing the praises of the California act that recently performed for the 92ZEW Free Concert Series, and this song is no exception. Frontman Ian Holljes told RS:
“Fleetwood Mac and Lindsey Buckingham’s writing have been so influential to us, and so to have his talents and incredibly distinctive guitar playing laid over one of our tracks felt like the world sort of folding over on itself,” frontman Ian Holljes tells Rolling Stone. “It was rewarding on two huge levels – the thrill of having one of your heroes play on your song and the actual impact of his beautiful guitarwork enhancing the song so meaningfully.”
Delta Rae definitely wowed the crowd at Soul Kitchen last year when they appeared and wowed the ZEW Staff when they performed in the ZEW Lounge beforehand (and what super-duper personalities they have!). They performed a mesmerizing version of ‘Down by the River’, where Ian explained the inspiration of the song (similar to Paul McCartney’s ‘Yesterday’, it came to him in a dream). And a hypnotic cover of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Chains’ which could explain Lindsey’s appearance on their record.
Here’s the official video for ‘If I Loved You’ followed by their 92ZEW Lounge performance of ‘The Chain’ & ‘Bottom of the River’.
