LOS ANGELES, April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Fleetwood Mac, currently on a hugely successful 48 city concert tour of North America, have confirmed that they are releasing an EP of new material today titled “Extended Play” exclusively for purchase on iTunes at http://smarturl.it/FleetwoodMacEP.
“Extended Play” includes three new songs “Sad Angel,” “It Takes Time” and “Miss Fantasy” written by Lindsey Buckingham and produced by Lindsey Buckingham and Mitchell Froom. A fourth cut, “Without You” was written by Stevie Nicks and co-produced by Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham. “Without You” was a lost song from the Buckingham/Nicks days which had been missing and happily rediscovered when someone posted an early demo of it on YouTube. The first single, “Sad Angel” is also being released to radio today. “Extended Play” is the first recording of new Mac music since the release of “Say You Will” over a decade ago.
“We all felt that it would be great to go into the studio and record new material before embarking on this tour and the result has been remarkable — our best group of songs in a long time. It’s a work in progress but we’re so enthused by what we’ve done that we thought we’d share some of it with our fans in the form of an EP now… We’re performing two cuts, ‘Sad Angel’ and ‘Without You’ in the show and the response has been terrific,” commented Buckingham.
Fleetwood Mac are multi-Grammy winning Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees. Their classic Rumours album released in 1977 is one of the most successful albums in recorded history with sales exceeding 40 million. It planted itself at the top of the pop charts for over 31 weeks and had four top ten singles. A special edition of Rumours celebrating its release 35 years ago was recently released on Warner Bros. Records.
