Fleetwood Mac's Christine McVie has been honoured with a lifetime achievement at this year's Ivor Novello songwriting awards which took place today (May 22, 2014) in London at The Grosvenor House Hotel.

McVie played with Fleetwood Mac for 28 years and wrote some of their most famous songs, including Don't Stop and Little Lies.

The annual awards, now in their 59th year, are voted for by songwriters.

Picking up her award, McVie confirmed she had rejoined Fleetwood Mac after a 15-year absence and would join them on a world tour.

The 70-year- old was presented with the tribute by 12-time Ivor winner Sir Tim Rice, who said: “She lives her songs, she has been through it all and she oozes class and style. Christine, whatever you’re doing, don’t stop.”

“I can announce that I have rejoined Fleetwood Mac. We are in the process of recording another album which should be out next year and we will tour Europe.” she added.

Congratulations Christine!!

I just love reading "new album" within the context of Christine McVie and Fleetwood Mac. A year ago I would never have believed this could come to pass.

I saw Fleetwood Mac in 2013....first time since 1997, the year that Christine McVie "retired". For me, Fleetwood Mac has been more about harmonies and the juxtaposition of 3 different songwriters on a single album...and not the over-hashing of the Buckingham/Nicks "drama"/angst. IMO//she's the BEST songwriter, but not a very dynamic performer LIVE. Looking forward to seeing the full lineup of Fleetwood Mac this fall. glennfromthebronx
