Fleetwood Mac to Release New EP

Fleetwood MacFleetwood Mac will release a new EP later this week. The band will be putting out their first new material since their Say You Will album from 2003, including new track "Sad Angel."

The band - Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks - debuted both that song and another, "Without You," last Thursday at the opening of their 2013 tour in Ohio, US. Lindsey announced news of the new release to the crowd at another show in Philadelphia. "One of the things we thought would be a good idea before we hit the road would be to go into the studio and cut some new material. So last year we did that. It's the best stuff we've done in a long time and in a few days we're going to drop an EP of new stuff," he said.

Ex-band member, Christine McVie - who left the band and retired from music in 1998 - has also said she would like to perform with the band at one of their London dates if they will allow her: "If they wanted me to, I might pop back on stage when they're in London just to do a little duet or something like that."

Fleetwood MacFleetwood Mac are reuniting to tour in 2013.

"The Chain" group - featuring Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks - are planning to get back together and play shows for the first time since 2009, Stevie confirmed today.

"Next year, so far. It's the plan. Because that's what we do. I do my [solo] thing. And Lindsey is out doing his [solo] thing now. Everybody's on board," she told CBS when asked if the band would tour again.

The move comes just months after drummer Mick said he never thought the band would tour again, due to the other members' solo careers: "I don't believe Fleetwood Mac will ever tour again, but I really hope we do. We have rehearsed it and prepared for it since 2010. I played drums on most of Stevie's album, the one she is still out there supporting and the one that is the reason that, for now, she refuses to do a Fleetwood Mac tour. It comes down to her."

Fleetwood Mac to Release New Album

Fleetwood Mac

are planning to release a new album. The legendary band - who kick off their Unleashed tour in Glasgow, Scotland, on Thursday - want to go back into the studio next year to start work on their first LP of original material since 2003’s Say You Will.

Singer says fans have a lot more to look forward to from the band, but say they can only start recording when they complete their dates. “When we’re on the road, we barely have time to go and have a meal, let alone write new material. But in January we’ll have a meeting and decide what to do,” she said.

The legendary singer also claims the band - who were notorious hellraisers during their 70s peak - have finally grown-up and are having a great time on the road. “Fleetwood Mac still presents some amazing opportunities. Around thirty years ago, we were all so self-absorbed that we couldn’t see out of our own corner. Things are a lot more fun now,” Nicks added.
