Buckingham, a nimble guitarist who also begins a new tour today, is the former lead player for the Hall of Fame rock ‘n’ roll band, Fleetwood Mac. He was ranked No. 100 in Rolling Stone magazine’s 2011 list of ”The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” He’s also set to go on tour (dates below).

The 71-year-old artist’s new single is the third he’s released from his upcoming record. Other tracks on the album, which is Buckingham’s first solo project since 2011, include “I Don’t Mind” and “On The Wrong Side.”

“Everything on the record is me, for better or worse. Many of the songs on this album are about the work and discipline it takes in maintaining a long-term relationship. Some of them are more about the discipline and some of them are more about the perks. ‘Scream’ is about the perks. It felt very celebratory and it was also very, very simple and short. To the point. It didn’t evolve into some huge thing. It made its case and got the hell out. It just seemed like a good place to start the album, somehow. It’s very upbeat and very optimistic and very positive. It’s a celebration of an aspect of life,” Buckingham said in a press release.

Buckingham is also featured on the new Halsey song, “Darling.”
