Fleetwood Mac Plan To Release First Album Since 2003 This Year

Fleetwood Mac will have a new album in 2017, the band’s first since ‘Say You Will’ 14 years ago in 2003.

Speaking with Rolling Stone, Christine McVie confirmed, “We cut seven songs in the studio already for the start of a brand-new studio album. Which we did probably nearer two years ago. We shelved that temporarily and then went on the road and did the tour. And now, actually, I think we’re going back in in October to try to finish it off. Stevie hasn’t participated yet, but hope springs eternal. She’s going on a solo tour at the moment. But Lindsey and I, we have plenty of songs. There are tons more in the bag that we have yet to record. And they’re fantastic. So we’re going to carry on and try to finish the record.”

McVie said she hopes the album will be ready for 2017.

Christine McVie didn’t appear on the last Fleetwood album ‘Say You Will’. Her last album with the band was ‘Time’ in 1995 but Stevie Nicks wasn’t on that one.

1990’s ‘Behind The Mask’ was missing Lindsay Buckingham. You have to go back 30 years to 1987 for ‘Tango In The Night, the last album to feature the classic line-up of Lindsay Buckingham, Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, John McVie and Mick Fleetwood.

‘Tango In The Night’ generated hit songs by Lindsay Buckingham ‘Big Love’, Stevie Nicks ‘Seven Wonders’ and Christine McVie ‘Everywhere’.
