There's an album on the way too...

Fleetwood Mac are planning to reform for a tour.

No dates have been finalised as yet, but the band are planning the reunion shows for early next year.

The American pop-rockers’ guitarist Lindsey Buckingham has said that the band are planning to record a new album following the live dates.

According to CMU Daily he said: “I think maybe there was even a sense that we would make a better album if we went out and hung out together first on the road.

“Maybe even sowing some seeds musically that would get us more prepared to go in the studio rather than just going in cold. It takes the pressure [off] from having to go in and make something cold.”

Buckingham also added that recent rumours suggesting that Sheryl Crow may join the band are untrue.

He explained: “I think with Stevie [Nicks], maybe to some degree there was a little too much testosterone on stage when we went out in 2003, and I think the band was looking to kind of balance that out a little bit, [but Sheryl‘s involvement] just kind of lost its momentum.”
