Watch: Fleetwood Mac Announce New EP, Debut New Song 'Sad Angel' Live

Fleetwood Mac have plans to release an EP of new songs in the near future.

The group's lead singer and guitarist, Lindsey Buckingham announced to a Philadelphia crowd last Saturday, that they've been working on new songs in the studio and will release an EP of new material "in a few days". It is "the best stuff Fleetwood Mac have done in a long time" he said.

Buckingham always mentioned that Fleetwood Mac has recorded a "whole bunch of stuff" that the band is unsure what to do with at the present time – sounds like a full-length follow-up to 2003s Say You Will could be in the works.

Once Buckingham was done sharing the good news, Fleetwood Mac then proceeded to perform one of the new songs from the EP, titled "Sad Angel". Watch their performance below.


In related news, key member Christine McVie has been absent from the Mac's live show for a while, but she recently told UK’s Metro that she'd be interested in returning to perform with the band:

"If they wanted me to, I might pop back on stage when they’re in London just to do a little duet or something like that."
