Legendary band return with new material
Fleetwood Mac are currently in the early stages of a huge tour and to prepare fans for their arrival on the world stage once more, the band have released an EP of new material, to whet their appetites. Entitled simply Extended Play, the record is available exclusively on iTunes and features three new songs written by Lindsey Buckingham (Sad Angel, It Takes Time and Miss Fantasy) as well as a revisioned track, Without You, which was originally written as part of the Buckingham Nicks project.
Speaking to Rolling Stone prior to the EP’s release, Buckingham explained that – despite many years of writing music together, he still finds that his song-writing partnership with Stevie Nicks shows new developments. “It's still evolving, and that's the beauty of it too. I've known Stevie since high school. We were a couple for many, many years, and we've been a musical couple forever," he explained. "After all this time you would think there was nothing left to discover, nothing left to work out, no new chapters to be written. But that is not the case – there are new chapters to be written.”
Extended Play marks the first release of new material from the band since 2003’s Say You Will LP.
