Christine McVie Celebrated With Previously Unreleased Song
A previously-unreleased song by Christine McVie has been shared on what would have been her 80th birthday. Listen to Little Darlin’, recorded during the sessions for the former Fleetwood Mac star’s 2004 solo album, In The Meantime, below.
The release of Little Darlin’ comes after the announcement that Rhino will be reissuing two of McVie’s solo albums on 3 November. Christine McVie will be released on CD and LP. Also, a cola-bottle clear vinyl version will be available exclusively from Barnes & Noble. On the same day, In The Meantime will be released on CD and as a 2LP set featuring a “songbird” etching on the final side.
Pre-order Christine McVie and In The Meantime now
McVie’s solo journey began in 1970 with her debut, Christine Perfect, her maiden name. Soon after its release, she put her solo career on hold when she joined Fleetwood Mac as a full-time member. For the next 14 years, she wrote some of the band’s biggest hits (Don’t Stop and You Make Loving Fun) before releasing her second solo album Christine McVie in 1984. The album peaked at No 26 on the Billboard 200, spending 23 weeks on the chart. The record produced two Top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, Got A Hold On Me (No 10) and Love Will Show Us How (No 30). Notably, the album has been unavailable on vinyl since its original release nearly 40 years ago.
Although McVie semi-retired from Fleetwood Mac and public life in 1998, she continued to write music. In 2004, she returned with her third and final solo album, In The Meantime. McVie produced the album with her nephew, Dan Perfect. The album was remastered and remixed for the upcoming release, including Little Darlin’. In The Meantime has never been available on vinyl until now.
