Fleetwood Mac Say You Will (2003)

Say You Will (2003)

Say You Will is Fleetwood Mac’s 17th studio album and the first Fleetwood Mac album since Future Games (1971) without keyboardist and singer-songwriter Christine McVie credited as an official band member. McVie, however, provides backup vocals on the songs “Bleed to Love Her” and “Steal Your Heart Away.” The album includes 18 songs, written by the remaining songwriters Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham.

Release

Reprise Records released Say You Will on Tuesday, April 15, 2003. The album debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 200 Albums chart and spawned the singles “Peacekeeper” and “Say You Will,” both moderately successful on the Adult Contemporary chart. “Peacekeeper” reached No. 80 on the Hot 100 Singles chart. The second single “Say You Will” reached No. 17 on the Adult Contemporary chart. The Sessions @AOL performances of “Peacekeeper” and “Say You Will” served as their official music videos.

Reprise also released “Running Through the Garden,” “Thrown Down,” and “Steal Your Heart Away” as promotional radio singles.

To further promote the release, Reprise issued a limited edition of Say You Will, which included a book with a poster and a bonus CD containing four additional songs (listed below).

In July 2003, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) certified the Say You Will gold for the shipment of 500,000 units to retailers. According to Nielsen Soundscan, the album has sold 733,000 copies in the United States (Billboard, June 2013).

Editor’s Pick: Steal Your Heart Away & Destiny Rules

“Steal Your Heart Away” sounds like a classic Fleetwood Mac song, with contributions from all 1975 band members, including Christine McVie, who provides guest vocals. With rich harmonies and shamelessly romantic lyrics, the song exemplifies what Fleetwood Mac does best — create beautiful, timeless music.

“Destiny Rules” is the album’s best overall group effort, with each band member’s individual contributions shining through, particularly Mick Fleetwood and John McVie’s distinctive rhythmic section. While Lindsey Buckingham’s guitar solos occasionally recall the work of REM, his famous bare-handed picking is unmistakable. Stevie’s lyrics are descriptively vibrant (“The coastline is glittering like a diamond snake in a black sky”), as she sings about another brilliant romance.
