Lindsey Buckingham Says New Fleetwood Mac Album Depends on Stevie Nicks
There will be a new album from Fleetwood Mac when — or if — Stevie Nicks is able to commit songs she’s written for the band and not her solo album. That’s according to Lindsey Buckingham, who recently said the group’s recording future depend on Nicks.
Buckingham talked to M Music and Musicans about Nicks’ recent solo album and about how much she enjoyed making it. “She hasn’t said this — this is just me — but, knowing Stevie, she’s probably thinking, ‘If I have to write five new songs, do I want to give them to Fleetwood Mac? (quote via NME.com)”
“I think she’s feeling protective and territorial about the experience she had doing her solo project,” Buckingham said, continuing, “And I can totally relate to that.”
Last week Fleetwood Mac played several shows in London. Christine McVie even joined the group on stage for a rendition of ‘Don’t Stop.’ It’s been a busy year for Fleetwood Mac, including an extensive North American tour which featured new material. In February, Nicks and Buckingham talked about new songs they’d recorded, saying whether or not a new album comes out of it depends on fan reaction. They did release the 17-minute ‘Extended Play‘ in April.
