Lindsey Buckingham says Fleetwood Mac fans can expect more new music from the stash that yielded the group's new "Extended Play" release.
The guitarist tells us that he, drummer Mick Fleetwood and bassist John McVie actually cut eight songs last year with producer Mitchell Froom; three of them -- "Sad Angel," "It Takes Time" and "Miss Fantasy" -- are featured on "Extended Play," which came out digitally on May 6, along with an unreleased Buckingham Nicks song called "Without You."
So what's going to become of those other eight songs? Buckingham tells us:
“We're not quite sure what we're gonna do. There is the idea of doing an album down the line, but we're gonna take everything on step at a time and see where it goes. I mean, if Stevie would like to either do some co-writing with me, or if she has some other things that she's, y'know, hasn't shared with us yet and she can bring those to the table...I have no preconceptions one way or the other in terms of what Fleetwood Mac will do or even what Fleetwood Mac should do...I think it's safe to say there is more than these four songs that you're gonna hear from Fleetwood Mac, it's just a question of how and when, y'know?”
The group has been playing "Sad Angel" and "Without You" consistently during the stops on its latest tour, which runs through July 6 in North America and then heads to Europe in September.
