Fleetwood Mac to Release New Music Before Spring Tour
by Gary Graff, Detroit
"These songs sound like they're 30," Stevie Nicks tells Billboard. "It blows my mind. Because we've never stopped, our voices and everything"
Steve Nicks tells Billboard that the group has recorded three songs for release before the band hits the road April 4 in Columbus, Ohio for a 34-city trek that concludes June 12 in Detroit. Two of the tunes, "Sad Angela" and "Miss Fantasy," stem from sessions guitarist Lindsey Buckingham, bassist John McVie and drummer Mick Fleetwood held earlier this year, while Nicks describes the third as "an old Buckingham Nicks song that, really, we can't either one of us figure out why it didn't go on the record."
The songs were recorded in November at Buckingham's home studio while the quartet was gathered to discuss its tour plans.
"We wanted to have something to put out before we go out, January or February, in whatever way you do that -- iTunes or something," explains Nicks, who says she herself doesn't own a computer or spend time on the Internet. "And since nobody really cares about albums anymore, if you can come up with two or three great songs and just put them out there...people can at least hear how we sound today when it comes to actually recording."
