FLEETWOOD MAC "Peacekeeper" Reprise

With Dixie Chicks' smash "Landslide" raising consciousness for Fleetwood Mac, the timing couldn't be better for the release of new material from the evergreen act (sans Christine McVie). "Peacekeeper," written by Lindsay Buckingham with lead vocals shared by Stevie Nicks, is vintage-quality Mac, familiar in its style and structure, and yet fresh and spirited enough to maintain appeal after countless spins. Support for the new project is reaching manic proportions: The single was showcased on NBC's Third Watch last month, a mega-tour is in the wings, Dateline has a profile planned, and the single is being offered as a download for $1.49 at the Reprise Web site. AC will have a field day, but there's no reason the grade-A "Peacekeeper" won't be sampled at radio across the board. A grand return and a hands-down hit.
