CHRISTINE McVIE ‘Songbird’ (A Solo Collection)


Available on backorder


Christine McVie has spent the vast majority of her professional career in Fleetwood Mac (writing & performing many of Fleetwood Mac’s biggest hits :”Don’t Stop,” “Everywhere,” and “Little Lies”), but she did take a brief break in 1984 to record Christine McVie and followed it up 20 years later with In the Meantime. This solo material is largely unknown to the general public — especially in America — but she hopes to change that with the release of Songbird (A Solo Collection). It’s a mixture of songs from her two solo albums plus a handful of unreleased songs, including “All You Gotta Do,” a duet with George Hawkins originally cut for In the Meantime.
For the new collection, McVie “went for my favorite songs that weren’t on Fleetwood Mac records,” working with producer Glyn Johns and redoing the tracks with extra instrumentation.

Fleetwood Mac have been completely inactive since the conclusion of their 2018/19 world tour. It was their first outing since their bitter split with Buckingham, when he was replaced by Crowded House frontman Neil Finn and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell. “Those guys were great,” McVie says, “but we’ve kind of broken up now, so I hardly ever see them.”
