Background and release
In the 2019 documentary, Fleetwood Mac’s Songbird – Christine McVie, Richard Dashut, the co-producer of Tango in the Night, briefly talked about the intro: “That’s a half-speed acoustic guitar and electric combined”. McVie herself also talked about the song’s intro: “He [Buckingham] slowed the tape down, really slowly, and played the parts slowly, and then when it came to the right speed, it sounded bloody amazing”.
The accompanying music video for “Everywhere” is a visual depiction of the poem The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes. There are two versions of the video; one features the story with members of the band appearing throughout, while the other does not feature the band at all.
