Christine McVie releases Songbird: A Solo Collection

Christine McVie has released Songbird: A Solo Collection (Rhino/Warner).

The 10-track compilation focuses on Christine’s second and third solo albums Christine McVie (1984) and In the Meantime (2004), with the majority of tracks coming from the latter; there are also two previously unreleased tracks from both recording sessions. A reimagined, orchestral version of Fleetwood Mac Rumours classic “Songbird” closes out the collection.

Producer Glyn Johns re-produced and remixed most of the tracks on Songbird, some of which feature new musicians and instrumentation. “He did a fantastic job; the quality of the sound is much better,” Christine told Johnnie Walker in the accompanying liner notes. “I’m actually really, really delighted with it.”

Curiously, Christine’s U.S. Top 40 hits and MTV playlist staples “Got a Hold on Me” (#10) and “Love Will Show Us How” (#30) are excluded from the compilation. But Songbird still soars with other bright love songs, while it explores reinterpretations of deeper cuts in Christine’s solo catalog. 

Songbird: A Solo Collection is available now in digital, CD, and vinyl formats.
