Fleetwood Mac hope to finish new album by Christmas

Band have not released a record since 2003

Fleetwood Mac‘s Christine McVie has given another update on the band’s much anticipated new album.

The band toured extensively through 2014 and 2015, with McVie returning to the fold for the first time in a decade and a half. They have not released a studio album since 2003’s ‘Say You Will’.

Speaking to The Guardian, McVie described the record as “half-finished”, adding: “It’s just seven tracks that we’ve got, and they’re only with guide vocals.”

With it pointed out that the band had said they were at the same point two years ago, McVie replied: “We’ve been doing a world tour! I’m going back in October to try and finish it. If it’s not finished by Christmas then I’ll go back after and finish it then. We do things in a weird way, I guess.”

She went on to say that the songs hadn’t been given titles yet but that she “like[s] them all, and that’s not a lie”.

“We have a fantastic variety of songs and I’m very, very pleased with what’s happened so far.”

During an interview with Billboard recently, Nicks admitted that the band’s famously tempestuous relationships could have a bearing on whether they make another album together.

“Is it possible that Fleetwood Mac might do another record? I can never tell you yes or no, because I don’t know. I honestly don’t know,” she said. “It’s like, do you want to take a chance of going in and setting up in a room for like a year [to record an album] and having a bunch of arguing people? And then not wanting to go on tour because you just spent a year arguing?”

“Or do you just go on tour because you know that you have fun up there and you love doing shows?” the musician continued. “And Christine’s only been back for a year and a half.”
