Fleetwood Mac has surged back into pop culture relevance over the past few months with the help of viral TikTok videos, a new single from the band’s leading lady, Stevie Nicks, as well as a new concert film that was released on Nov. 5.

The wave of Fleetwood Mac-tivity shows no signs of slowing down as Nicks recently teamed up with pop icon Miley Cyrus to create a new mashup that dropped Friday, Billboard reports.

The medley is appropriately titled “Edge of Midnight” as it combines elements from Nicks’ 1982 hit song “Edge of Seventeen” and Cyrus’s new top-20 single “Midnight Sky,” according to Variety. You can listen to it here:

The new mashup, like “Edge of Seventeen,” starts off with guitarist Waddy Wachtel’s unmistakable 16th-note riff. This isn’t the first time the iconic riff has been sampled in a newer pop single. You can also hear it kick off Destiny’s Child’s 2001 hit “Bootylicious,” according to Variety.

Nicks has her own history of sampling others’ work, too. The singer borrowed snippets from Prince’s “Little Red Corvette” to use in her 1983 single “Stand Back,” Variety reports. The singer describes her conversation with Prince about the sampling in her new concert film “24 Karat Gold.”

Through a tweet, Nicks described her recent duet with Cyrus as, “Magical!” and stated that she loved singing alongside the artist.

In an Instagram post announcing the new song’s release, Cyrus said, “Stevie Nicks has always been my idol & an inspiration. It’s an honor to now call her my friend and collaborator.”

Both Nicks and Cyrus have kept themselves quite busy over the past few months. In October, Nicks released her first new song in six years, a politically-charge ballad called “Show Them the Way,” according to Pitchfork. Cyrus is currently promoting her new album, “Plastic Hearts” which is set to release worldwide on Nov. 27, per Billboard.
