Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham has issued an update on the band’s new album.

Buckingham discussed how McVie, who recently rejoined the band after 16 years apart, had sent him piano and voice demos, which he then developed.

“I took massive liberties with them,” he said.

“We never envisioned finishing the album in the short term. We set it aside. Stevie [Nicks] will come in and participate. I have material I had been working on.

“There’s no danger that it will slip between the tracks. It’s too profound to. Once we finish it we can think about going out and trying something new.”

Speaking about his working relationship with McVie, Buckingham said: “Christine and I were able to concentrate on each other. We were exploring some new turf. That became enlightening to me.”

He also added that Nicks, who recently released her 24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault collection, is “otherwise engaged” at present.

The band recently re-entered the top 20 with their album Rumours, which climbed 93 places to 11.

They are also currently discussing the possibility of playing Glastonbury next year.

Fleetwood Mac have been firm favourites to headline the music event at Worthy Farm for a few years, but have never managed to free their schedules.
