One day after Best Coast's take on "Rhiannon" dropped online, we get two new cover songs from the upcoming Fleetwood Mac tribute album Just Tell Me That You Want Me (out August 14 via Starbucks Label Hear Music/Concord). Listen to Lykke Li and MGMT put their distinctive charm on the '70s band's biggest hits.

Lykke Li adds a touch of her melancholy vocals to "Silver Springs," which was originally intended for Fleetwood Mac's 1977 album Rumors (but instead released in '77 as a B-side). MGMT, meanwhile, take the title track from the Mac's fifth studio album quite literally—their cover of 1971's "Future Games" is psychedelic and spaced out (and a little too weird). It's not your parents' Fleetwood Mac anymore.

Listen to the songs below, then tell us which one is your favorite in the comments.
