STEVIE NICKS SAYS DEMAND WILL LEAD TO NEW FLEETWOOD MAC ALBUM

2/15/2013

Stevie Nicks says that Fleetwood Mac is going to wait and see how their new material fares in the market before recording a new album. The band will release two new songs digitally before kicking off its North American dates in April. Nicks explained the situation to Billboard, saying, "Big, long albums don't seem to be what everyone wants these days. So we thought, 'Well, let's go the other route,' because Lindsey (Buckingham) was adamant that we have some new material. If we get that feeling that people do want to hear another 10 songs, then we'll reassess."

She went to talk about how exhausting the promotional campaign and road trek behind her recent Top 10 album, In Your Dreams, was to get the music in front of the public: "When we were talking about a long album, I just tried it, and I did more press than Fleetwood Mac will ever do."

Stevie Nicks told us that the Fleetwood Mac's hiatuses are important for re-energizing and centering the band: "People always tend to say, 'Y'know, you broke up, y'know, in 2009.' We didn't break up. We never break up. We just take a break, and then Lindsey goes and does his solo stuff, I do the same thing, Mick (Fleetwood) plays in his blues band all over Hawaii -- he's opened a restaurant. John McVie lives in Oahu, which is where he's always wanted to live, where he has boat, and he's like a Hawaiian. So, it's like, everybody's ready. That makes it really special and it makes it something that everybody looks forward to. It's like a fantastic Halloween party that you haven't been to a Halloween party in three years."
