Lindsey Buckingham has said that there will only be a new Fleetwood Mac album if Stevie Nicks wants to do it.

The reformed band played a series of shows at London's O2 Arena last week as part of a world tour, and their seemingly repaired relationships have led to speculation that they could record a new studio album together.

However, Buckingham has claimed that the only way the group could make a new album is if Nicks wanted to write new material rather than working on her solo career.

Speaking to M Music And Musicians about Nicks' 2011 solo album 'In Your Dreams', he said: "She had a wonderful experience making that album. She hasn't said this – this is just me – but, knowing Stevie, she's probably thinking, 'If I have to write five new songs, do I want to give them to Fleetwood Mac?' I think she's feeling a but protective and territorial about the experience she had doing her solo project. And I can totally relate to that."

He went on to add: "The way we do things is always a political minefield. If it's not Stevie, it's me; someone is always causing trouble. I know Warner Brothers is dying to get an album from us, even though we're not signed to them anymore. Stevie needs to come to the table with some material. In order to contemplate a new album, she has to want to do it."

Last week (September 25), Fleetwood Mac were joined onstage by former member Christine McVie for a rendition of their classic track 'Don't Stop'. You can watch a video interview with Stevie Nicks and Mick Fleetwood by clicking at the bottom of the page.
