|Additional Info: Recorded on Monday the 20th of November, 2017 during our regular recording sessions for Parralox. I had actually prepared "I Only Wanna Be With You" for Louise to sing, as a potential song for Holiday '17. And as I was getting the studio ready to record the track, I heard Louise singing a song while doing her vocal warm up. I got goosebumps and said "Are you singing Fleetwood Mac?" And Louise mentioned that this was one of the songs she sings to warm up her voice. Right! So I scrapped I Only Wanna Be With You (for the moment) and whipped up a quick version of Dreams. Louise recorded the song in 4 takes only. Then I added about 64 layers of backing vocals and BAM! Song done.
Also, we had already recorded a song called Dreams, which was a song I wrote in 1995 with Lillia Auzou when I was in the band Nova. So we have now renamed that song to Dreams II, because it's planned to go on our next album Genesis, which will be released in 2018, as this Dreams song will come out on Holiday '17 in a few weeks. So it wouldn't really make sense to have Dreams by Fleetwood Mac renamed as Dreams II.
