    Earlier this year, Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie revealed they were working on a collaborative album of duets. Today, the duo have officially announced Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie, a 10-track collection due out June 9th via Atlantic Records.

    The album began coming together when McVie rejoined Fleetwood Mac for their On With the Show tour three years ago. She and Buckingham found their collaborative spirit rekindled and would spend time before rehearsals recording new material. “We were exploring a creative process, and the identity of the project took on a life organically,” Buckingham said 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?!!'”

    The album was recorded at Los Angeles’ The Village studios, the same location where Fleetwood Mac recorded albums like Tusk. Though Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie is strictly considered a joint effort between the two title artists, it’s also the closest thing to new Fleetwood music in over a decade, as bandmates Mick Fleetwood and John McVie joined in on the recordings.
