"We're doing something for sure [next year]," he revealed. "I wouldn't be shocked if it was a tour and possibly an album…[I]t's hard to get everybody on the same page at the same time, but I think this might be one of those years where everyone will want to do the same thing. Whatever that is."
First off, though, Buckingham will focus on promoting his sixth solo effort, Seeds We Sow, which arrives in stores next Tuesday. Regarding the material he wrote for the album, he said, "The songs are all about the accumulation of choices that we make every day and the karmic part of that -- which is where the title Seeds We Sow comes from. In my own life I've made a lot of choices that weren't always popular with people around me. Only in the last few years have I been able to look at them with the perspective of time."
Buckingham is set to mount what reportedly will be a 50-date tour in support of Seeds We Sow that's slated to launch September 9 in Sparks, Nevada.
Rolling Stone also questioned the singer-guitarist about the possibility that Buckingham Nicks, the long-out-of-print 1973 album he and Stevie recorded as a duo before joining Fleetwood Mac, might finally get issued on CD. "We keep talking about that," he asserted. "We have every intention of putting that album back out and possibly even doing something along with it, but I can't put any specifics on that."
When the magazine asked if he and Nicks would consider touring as a duo, Buckingham enthusiastically responded, "I think that would be great! I wouldn't do anything other than speculate at this point, but I think it would be tremendous fun and a different kind of thing for both of us. And it would certainly be something circular in that we'd be meeting up right where we started."
