Fleetwood Mac to play new music on UK tour
Rumour mill: Fleetwood Mac
Fleetwood Mac will play new music on tour in the UK later this year.
The band have announced five dates in September and October, where they’ll also celebrate the 35th anniversary of classic album Rumours.
Mick Fleetwood tells the BBC that three new songs have been completed, and the aim is to record a full album. Work started six months ago when he and John McVie got together with Lindsey Buckingham and left a “calling card” for Stevie Nicks.
“We wanted her to know we wanted to make new music and we had some great songs,” says the drummer. “But her mother died not too long after and it wasn’t the time, so we dropped it.
“Then recently she’s sung on three of them and recorded one original song of hers. We’re going to mix those down and there’ll be something we will play on stage.”
Rumours re-entered the UK charts at the weekend after the release of an anniversary edition.
