Fleetwood Mac will release an EP of brand new material “in a few days,” Lindsey Buckingham said onstage during a show this past Saturday in Philadelphia. “It’s the best stuff we’ve done in a long time,” Buckingham said as he introduced one such new cut, “Sad Angel,” that you can check out thanks to a rather impressive fan-shot video: The track opens with the guitarist picking muted notes over steady hi-hat clicks before the song opens up into driving, harmony-laden barnburner.
There’s no word on the exact release date for the EP, but Stevie Nicks mentioned last year that the band had been working on new material. “We actually have two new Fleetwood Mac songs that I cut with Lindsey two weeks ago we might play,” Nicks told Rolling Stone in an interview about the band’s current world tour. “I had a really good time working with him for four days at his house. I got to hang out with his family and his kids, his grown up kids, and really connect with him again. We’re pretty proud of what we have done, and we’re looking at it through the eyes of wisdom now, instead of through the eyes of jealousy and resentment and anger.”
