Fleetwood Mac discuss ‘profound and enlightening’ new material

Lindsey Buckingham says the band have been "exploring new turf"

Fleetwood Mac‘s Lindsey Buckingham has given a progress report on recording sessions for the band’s new album.

Speaking to the the Wall Street Journal, Buckingham described their new material as “profound” and promised that they would be “exploring new turf” on the record. The group announced plans earlier this year to begin work on a new LP.

He also hailed the influence of returning member Christine McVie, who announced she was rejoining the band in January of this year. Previously, she had not played with the group since 1995. “We were exploring some new turf,” he added. “That became enlightening to me.”

Last month, Buckingham said that there’d only be a new Fleetwood Mac album if Stevie Nicks agrees to it. The band released an EP in 2013, called ‘Extended Play’, which only reached only No. 125 on the UK album chart.
