Neil Finn, Stevie Nicks & Christine McVie share new song written for homeless Kiwis

News 03/06/2020

Neil Finn has enlisted the help of his Fleetwood Mac bandmates to help him fundraise for Auckland City Mission, who is fast approaching 100 years since it's finding.

The trio wrote and recorded the new song 'Find Your Way Back Home' and released it earlier today.

“There are all these people in all of our lives, I think, that we drift away from,” Finn told NZHerald. “There was a story there, that was a connection that I made. It just puts it in your backyard. I live in a pretty fortunate situation, and I move in circles that are not in daily contact with homeless people. So, it’s good to be able to find a pathway in your head to relate to some degree.”

“Find Your Way Back Home” features guest vocals from Nicks and a co-writing credit for McVie, who Finn asked to help pen the song while on tour with Fleetwood Mac. “I guess I had every incentive to make sure that the words were evocative, simple, relatable, truthful and not crass or message-y,” he said. “It’s easy to be nebulous and abstract, and I’m quite good at that in my songs generally. So, to be direct in a way is a real challenge.”
