Classic rock icon, Mick Fleetwood has shared a new recording and video from his Da*da*ism project called “These Strange Times.” The song is a reworking of a Fleetwood Mac original which originally appeared on their 16th studio album, Time in 1995.
Fleetwood’s updated version has been extended with a sample from “Albatross” – a guitar-based instrumental from the Peter Green-era Fleetwood Mac. Green, who passed away in July this year, gave the band their first UK number one single with the track when it was first released in 1968.
The new version arrives with an incredible eight-minute official music video, exploring our contemporary crisis through a moving lens, “centred around the idea of something greater than us, which lies at the core of our very human struggle to be our best selves.” Watch below.
Mick Fleetwood’s Da da ism | “These Strange Times”
Mick Fleetwood said in a statement: “The project is about the energy of choice, of deciding if you want to be a part of the dark or the light when push comes to shove, which seems very apropos at this moment in history. It’s about how you read things, which is very important today.”
“…There’s a rejoicing at the end of the song when the narrator chooses the side of the light. The song is about all of us making that choice ourselves and the relief we feel when we are no longer caught in the middle.”
