Reportedly titled Buckingham MCVie, the record will be a homage to Buckingham Nicks - Lindsey's pre-Fleetwood Mac album with Stevie Nicks. The album will also feature appearances by Mick Fleetwood and John MCVie, according to NME.com.
“I’ve been sending Lindsey demos in their very raw form, and he’s been doing his Lindsey magic on them, which I love,” Christine told the Los Angeles Times.
“It made sense to me with what she had given me and what I done with it. But we still didn’t know how it was going to play out in the studio” Lindsey added. "I loved doing it, because it’s something that I haven’t had a chance to do for Stevie as much as I did in the past.”
Fleetwood MAC toured extensively through 2014 and 2015, but the band haven’t released a studio album since Say You Will in 2003. The rockers have sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling bands of all time.
Christine credits the turbulent history of Fleetwood MAC - including marriages and break-ups within the group - for contributing to their now iconic status.
“I think people know what they’re going to get," Christine said in an interview in September (16). "I think people hope they’re going to see some drama or something on stage. Maybe they’ll see somebody beat somebody up. There’s always a bit of tension. There’s always some little thing somewhere. But that’s part of the band."
The troubled relationships began when Stevie Nicks dated guitarist Lindsey Buckingham while Christine was married to bassist John MCVie. Meanwhile, during the recording of Rumours in 1976 drummer Mick, who went on to have a two-year affair with Stevie, was in the throes of a divorce from his first wife, Jenny Boyd.
The discord famously came out in the music, as the band poured out their feelings in song form. Hit track Go Your Own Way was Buckingham's bitter parting shot at Stevie, who responded with the more philosophical Dreams.
“It’s very difficult to get all five of us in one room. It’s like herding sheep. It’s almost impossible. You need a really good sheepdog," laughed Christine.
