Mick Fleetwood says new album without Nicks will win awards

music news 22/03/2017

Mick Fleetwood said that the upcoming Fleetwood Mac album, which features the whole band except Stevie Nicks is good enough to win awars.

The LP is being released in the middle of this year under Buckingham McVie, as it consists of songs written by Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie.

It also features Fleetwood and bassist John McVie after Stevie Nicks declared herself unavailable due to her solo schedule.

“The crafting of the album became so specifically about Chris and Lindsey some time ago,” Fleetwood told Uncut

“It came under the heading of music that had to come out. Chris is full of vim and vigor, which is mind-blowing, and I’m really happy for Lindsey, because this is what he most likes to do putting something together."

This relationship is a real expression of a musical powerhouse that’s come to the fore, and we’re all happy about that. 

“It’s really cool. I think they’ll be walking down some red carpets with this one.”

Although Nicks didn't participate in the album she does plan to return in time for a tour with the band next year.

“The 2018 tour is supposed to be a farewell but you take farewell tours one at a time,” McVie said.

Somehow we always come together, this unit. We can feel it ourselves.
