Lindsey Buckingham has announced that Fleetwood Mac will release an EP of new material later this week.

The announcement came on stage in Philadelphia where the reunited band were playing one of the first dates of their 2013 world tour at the Fargo Centre on Saturday night (April 6). Speaking to the crowd before playing new song 'Sad Angel', Buckingham said: "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". Scroll down to watch the performance and hear the announcement now.

Meanwhile, Christine McVie has said that she would be keen to perform live with Fleetwood Mac when they play live in London later this year. The group will perform three gigs at London's O2 Arena in September as part of a world tour and McVie, who retired from the music industry in 1998, has gone on record as saying that she will "pop back on stage" if the opportunity arises. Speaking to last week, McVie said: "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 Mac's UK dates are as follows:

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