Band has confirmed the unexpected

Image: www.facebook.com/fleetwoodmac

Fleetwood Mac’s Christine McVie has confirmed the band have a new album on the way.

McVie told Rolling Stone  the ground breaking band have 7 songs lock and loaded and have plenty of songs to work on;

“We cut seven songs in the studio already for the start of a brand-new studio album, which we did probably nearer two years ago”.

The band, who toured together, playing Australia last year, surprised fans with the tightness and together feel between the historically shambolic band.

Seeing the band onstage it seemed like no issues were ever present and they sounded better than recorded.

This will be the first record for the band in 13 years, the first with McVie since she left the band in 1998.

Looking forward to what the band are coming up with in the near future.
