Lindsey Buckingham Says Fleetwood Mac Will Record A New Album If Stevie Nicks Agrees

But only if she agrees...
In an interview with M Music And Musicians (via NME), Lindsey Buckingham said there will only be a new Fleetwood Mac album if Stevie Nicks agrees to it. The band got back together for a series of shows at London's O2 Arena last week as part of a world tour. There have been rumors that a new album could follow. Buckingham says the only way it would happen is if Nicks wanted to write new material instead of working on her solo career.
While talking about her 2011 solo album In Your Dreams, he said: "She had a wonderful experience making that album. She hasn't said this – this is just me – but, knowing Stevie, she's probably thinking, 'If I have to write five new songs, do I want to give them to Fleetwood Mac?' I think she's feeling a but protective and territorial about the experience she had doing her solo project. And I can totally relate to that. The way we do things is always a political minefield. If it's not Stevie, it's me; someone is always causing trouble. I know Warner Brothers is dying to get an album from us, even though we're not signed to them anymore. Stevie needs to come to the table with some material. In order to contemplate a new album, she has to want to do it."
