Fleetwood Mac reveal plans to record new album with Christine McVie

Fleetwood Mac have said that they will be recording a brand new album with former member Christine McVie, who it was recently revealed is set to rejoin the band.

Earlier this year a spokesperson for the band announced McVie, who originally left Fleetwood Mac in 1998, was returning to the fold and that a 2014 tour featuring the reunited line-up would be announced soon.

Now, speaking to Maui News – via Fleetwoodmacnews.com – Mick Fleetwood of the band said that McVie has been writing new songs for the group, and they will be recording together in March.

McVie joined the band in 1970 after marrying the group's bassist, John McVie. She continued on with the group for the next 28 years as main songwriter, vocalist and keyboard player. She's responsible for some of the band's biggest hits, including 'Say You Love Me', 'Don't Stop', 'You Make Loving Fun', 'Little Lies' and 'Everywhere'.

Rumours surfaced last year that McVie was contemplating rejoining Fleetwood Mac, and she appeared on stage when they played London's O2 last September to perform 'Don't Stop'. In an interview with The Guardian after the concerts last year, McVie said she would be "delighted" if the band were to ask her to perform with them again.
