Lindsey Buckingham opens up about Fleetwood Mac's "profound" new album
Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham has opened up about the band's plans for their brand new studio album.
Buckingham confirmed that he and keyboardist/singer Christine McVie, who rejoined the band earlier this year, are exchanging song ideas.
The album will be the band's first since 2003's Say You Will, and their first with the iconic Rumours line-up that includes both Buckingham and McVie since 1987's Tango In The Night.
Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Buckingham said that he and McVie had been working on new songs, but that Stevie Nicks had not contributed to the sessions yet.
Asked about the band's progress and plans for the album, he said: "We never envisioned finishing the album in the short term. We set it aside. Stevie will come in and participate. I have material I had been working on. There’s no danger that it will slip between the tracks. It’s too profound to.”
Then asked if the band would be playing new songs live, he added: "Once we finish it, we can think about going out and trying something new.”
Fleetwood Mac have been strongly linked with a headline slot at next summer's Glastonbury Festival.
