Rumours Available January 29 From Rhino

LOS ANGELES â Fleetwood Mac, one of rockâs most enduring, beloved and successful bands, will circulate a fresh round of Rumours next year with expanded and deluxe versions of the album in celebration of its 35th anniversary. Rumours made the band one of the most iconic bands of the 1970s and garnered wide critical praise, earned the Grammy® for Album of the Year, and has now sold more than 40 million copies worldwide since its 1977 debut.

In celebration of the release, the current lineup of the band, Mick Fleetwood and John McVie, both original members since 1967, and Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, who joined the band in 1975, will kick off and their first U.S. tour since 2009 in April. The 34-date jaunt features a number of Canadian stops including Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary and Vancouver.

The three CD expanded edition includes the original album and the B-side âSilver Springs,â a dozen unreleased live recordings from the groupâs 1977 world tour, and an entire disc filled with unreleased takes from the albumâs recording sessions. The deluxe edition includes all of the music from the expanded version, plus an additional disc of outtakes, a DVD that features âThe Rosebud Film,â a 1977 documentary about the album, and the album on vinyl. RUMOURS will be available January 29 from Rhino in the standard remastered version ($13.99), the Expanded edition ($24.98) and the Super Deluxe Edition Box set ($99.98). Digital versions will also be available.

Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Christine McVie, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks recorded Rumours against a backdrop personal turmoil, chronicling their raw emotions in songs like âGo Your Own Way,â âGold Dust Womanâ and âDreams,â the latter becoming the bandâs first number one smash.

The disc of 12 unreleased live recordings from the bandâs 1977 Rumours tour features performances from concerts in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Nashville and Columbia, S.C. The songs include album tracks like âThe Chain,â âOh Daddyâ and âSongbirdâ as well as âWorld Turningâ and âRhiannon,â two tracks from the groupâs 1975 eponymous release.

Producers also have compiled a selection of 16 unreleased recordings from the albumâs sessions including early takes of âGo Your Own Way,â âI Donât Want To Knowâ and the popular b-side âSilver Springs.â There are also several demo recordings, including one for the outtake âPlanets of the Universe,â plus an instrumental version of âNever Going Back Again.â

The deluxe edition of Rumours features three additional pieces. First is an 18-track compilation of session outtakes originally released in the 2004 reissue of the album. Next is the original album on 140-gram vinyl. Finally, there is a DVD with âThe Rosebud Film.â This 1977 documentary by Michael Collins includes interviews, rehearsal footage and live performances of: âWorld Turning,â âRhiannon,â âSay You Love Me,â âGo Your Own Way,â âYou Make Loving Funâ and âIâm So Afraid.â
