Fleetwood said, "About six months ago Lindsey [Buckingham], me and John [McVie] went into the studio and cut about eight or nine songs of Lindsey’s. Stevie’s done a little bit of singing on some of those songs. My aspiration and Lindsey's – and hopefully it will be the band in total – is that we’ll eventually work round to having the music we started turn into another Fleetwood Mac album down the road in the course of the next year.

Fleetwood Mac begin a new world tour on April 4 in Columbus, Ohio. Speaking about the possibility of the band playing UK shows this year, the drummer confirmed: "The specifics are still to be worked out, but we’re coming, we’re coming."

Fleetwood Mac release expanded and deluxe versions of their 1977 album Rumours on January 28.
