One-time Fleetwood Mac songwriter and vocalist Christine McVie�s first solo outing in two decades is to mark the first link-up between Adventure Records and Sanctuary since their chart topping Christmas triumph with Mad World.

Following the UK platinum-selling success of the Michael Andrews featuring Gary Jules single, the two companies are joining forces again for the release on June 7 of McVie�s Meantime.

The title, the first solo album since McVie�s self-titled release, also reunites McVie with Adventure Records co-founder Paul Conroy, who worked with her on Fleetwood Mac releases while he was an executive at Warner Music and landed this new release following an approach by her manager and music publisher Martin Wyatt. �He brought it to me and I just loved it,� says Conroy.

Conroy then decided to speak to Sanctuary about co-handling the album due to its track record of working with mature
artists such as Steve Winwood and Todd Rundgren. Adventure has gone with Sanctuary for the world outside the US and
Canada, while teaming up with Koch in North America. Separately, McVie and Wyatt have overseen the launch of a new publishing operation, which debuts with the new album.
