See Lindsey Buckingham, Christine McVie Perform Upbeat ‘Lay Down for Free’

‘Late Late Show’ spot promotes new leg of U.S. touring behind Fleetwood Mac duo’s collaborative LP

Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie performed their effervescent new pop-rock single, “Lay Down for Free,” on Thursday’s Late Late Show.

Buckingham anchored the track with his palm-muted guitar riff and a vocal accentuated with squeals and shouts. McVie harmonized quietly while hammering away at her keyboard, and the entire band – including two additional guitarists – merged their voices into a wall of glossy chorus harmony.

“Lay Down for Free” is the fourth single from the Fleetwood Mac duo’s first collaborative album, Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie, which came out in June. The late-night performance preceded the second leg of their U.S. tour, which launches October 14th in San Jose, California and runs through mid-November.

After announcing their joint album, Buckingham and McVie enthused to Rolling Stone about being able to collaborate in a more direct way – without the “baggage” of their more famous main group. “We’ve always connected musically in Fleetwood Mac, because we’re the only people who play more than one note,” McVie said.
