Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks has revealed plans to re-issue her debut album with bandmate Lindsey Buckingham.
Before joining the band in 1974, the former lovers recorded a single album under the name Buckingham Nicks in 1973.
However, it has remained out of print for many years and has not seen an official release on CD or download.
Nicks told Rolling Stone: “I went into Lindsey’s house two weeks ago and spent four days there. We recorded a very old Buckingham Nicks song that we loved and couldn’t figure out why it didn’t go on the album. It got brushed under the carpet somehow. We recorded it, so that’s a third song.
“ is the 40th anniversary of Buckingham Nicks, and we’re hoping next year to get the record out. Then we’ll take that lost song and put it on the record.
“That’s kind of exciting, though it doesn’t have anything to do with Fleetwood Mac. People have been waiting forever for that record to come back out. Fleetwood Mac is totally good with us doing that. They know.”
She continued: “It was great spending time with Linds. We’re old enough now that we’ve laid down our weapons. We started this whole thing in 1968 and we’re proud of what we’ve done. We look at each other in a slightly different light now. It’s a good light.”
When asked if they might release a deluxe edition box set of the album, she said: “It is the 40th anniversary, because it was released in 1973. We have this new version of an old demo.
“So, we should put the album back out, and if we can make that happen then Buckingham Nicks should go out on the road next year. It would be great to do it in the 40th anniversary year. This might not just be the year of Fleetwood Mac, but we might throw in the Buckingham Nicks album for a special, sparkly, extra present.”
On whether they may fully reform as a duo on tour, she added: “There’s always a possibility. That is a situation where we would actually go on stage and do the complete Buckingham Nicks album.
“It would be a trip to bring it back with Waddy Wachtel and some other people from San Francisco. It would be trippy for Lindsey and I to revisit those songs.”
Fleetwood Mac released a new Extended Play collection earlier this year
