Credit: Danny ClinchStevie Nicks is currently out on her 24 Karat Gold tour in support of her recent solo album. But as far as recording a new album with Fleetwood Mac, Nicks believes that the band shouldn’t waste its time.

Before Fleetwood Mac launched its most recent tour, the band worked on some new tracks without Stevie. While Mick Fleetwood suggested that the tracks might be released with just Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie singing, Nicks doesn’t buy it. “You can never say never, but I don’t think that will happen,” she tells ABC Radio.

That doesn’t mean Stevie’s ready to join the group in the studio, though.

“The only reason that I don’t really wanna do a record is because I think that, in a year and a half, we’ll probably go out and do another Fleetwood Mac tour, since Christine has come back,” she explains. McVie rejoined Fleetwood Mac in 2014 after a 16-year absence.

Nicks thinks touring is the better plan, simply because of Fleetwood Mac’s dynamics.

“Do we want to go and close ourselves up in a studio for a year, [and] make a record that’s really good but that probably won’t sell, because records don’t really sell that much?” she asks. “And then we’ll have been stuffed together for a year in one room, and…when you come out of that room, we may not want to go on a tour!”

The logical solution, Stevie tells ABC Radio, is to “choose the tour over the record… because touring is much more fun than making a record when you don’t have any idea how that record’s gonna come out.”
