Fleetwood Mac recording new album
Christine McVie has confirmed Fleetwood Mac are working on a new album, their first since 2003
Fleetwood Mac are recording a new album.
The 'Go Your Own Way' hitmakers haven't released a studio LP since 'Say You Will' in 2003 but Christine McVie has revealed they are hoping to get back into the studio to complete work on a record they started two years ago, though Stevie Nicks is currently too busy to join them.
She said: "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."
Christine and bandmate Lindsey Buckingham have "plenty" of "fantastic" songs ready to be recorded for the record.
She added to Rolling Stone magazine: "Lindsey (Buckingham) 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. And then maybe if Stevie doesn't want to be part of that then we can go out and just do some smaller concerts."
Though Stevie is currently unable to join her bandmates, Christine insists they wouldn't do a big tour without her.
Asked if they would consider playing without Stevie, she said: "As a four-piece, yeah. With a view of doing a huge world tour after that, with Stevie."
