Fleetwood Mac‘s Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie will release their first album as a duo, Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie, June 9th via Atlantic. The album is available to pre-order digitally, as well as on CD and vinyl. The first single, “In My World,” will be available April 14th on digital and streaming services.
Buckingham and McVie will also embark on a North American tour this summer, starting June 21st in Atlanta and wrapping July 27th in Denver. Tickets go on sale April 21st.
The longtime collaborators rekindled their working relationship in 2014 when McVie rejoined Fleetwood Mac for their 2014 “On With the Show” tour. The pair recorded the LP at Village Studios in Los Angeles, where Fleetwood Mac also made several albums, including Tusk. Buckingham and McVie tapped bandmates Mick Fleetwood and John McVie to serve as the rhythm section for much of the album.
“We were exploring a creative process, and the identity of the project took on a life organically,” Buckingham said of the record in a statement. “The body of work felt like it was meant to be a duet album. We acknowledged that to each other on many occasions, and said to ourselves, ‘What took us so long?!’”
Along with Buckingham/McVie and the duo’s upcoming tour, Fleetwood Mac will headline a new bi-coastal festival this July. Classic East and Classic West will take place at Citi Field in New York and Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, respectively. The lineup also boasts the Eagles, Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan, Journey and Earth, Wind & Fire.
