Lindsey Buckingham on Stevie Nicks: 'We have more of a connection now"

Lindsey Buckingham has opened up about his current relationship with Stevie Nicks.

Speaking about being back on the road with the band and his former partner Nicks, Buckingham told Rolling Stone: "Stevie and I have probably more of a connection now than we have in years. You can feel it. It's tangible on stage."

In the interview, Buckingham also discussed the band's first new material in 10 years, which was recently released as the Extended Play EP."With You", one of the four tracks on the record, is around 40 years old, pre-dating either Buckingham or Nicks' involvement with Fleetwood Mac.

"Stevie and I had a little disagreement over when it was written," explained Buckingham. "I believe it was written when we were in the process of culling material for a possible second Buckingham-Nicks album, before we were dropped by Polydor. She claims it was written earlier, but I'm not so sure." He continued: "It's a very sweet song that really harkens back to a time when we were far more innocent. She's writing to me and it's about our relationship, when we'd only been together for a very short time."

Fleetwood Mac will play a string of UK dates later this year. The band will play:

Dublin 02 (September 20)
London O2 Arena (24, 25, 27)
Birmingham LG Arena (29)
Manchester Arena (October 1)
Glasgow The Hydro (3)
