Longtime Fleetwood Mac Collaborators Team Up For First Duo Record!
Longtime members of Fleetwood Mac, Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie have joined together to record their first-ever album as a duo. Simply titled Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie, the ten-song album will be released by Atlantic Records in the Summer of 2017, followed by a run of special U.S. concerts.
The collaboration began three years ago, when McVie rejoined Fleetwood Mac for the group's "On With The Show" tour. The pair went in to record new material prior to rehearsals for the tour and their natural creative chemistry was reignited. According to Buckingham, "We were exploring a creative process, and the identity of the project took on a life organically. The body of work felt like it was meant to be a duet album. We acknowledged that to each other on many occasions, and said to ourselves, ‘what took us so long?!!'"
Working their natural singer songwriter skills together came easily for the duo. Said McVie, "We've always written well together, Lindsey and I, and this has just spiraled into something really amazing that we've done between us." Sessions for the album took place at The Village Studios in Los Angeles, which is where Fleetwood Mac recorded several of their classic albums, including Tusk. Buckingham and McVie were joined in the studio by fellow bandmates Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, who supplied much of the dynamic rhythmic engine.
