Official Charts is reporting that Fleetwood Mac could see their records surge up the Official Albums Chart, following the sad news of member Christine McVie’s death last week.
McVie – who was behind many of the group’s biggest hits including “Little Lies”, “Don’t Stop”, “Everywhere” and “Songbird” – passed away on November 30, aged 79.
In the days since Christine’s death, interest in Fleetwood Mac’s back catalogue has soared. The group’s seminal 1977 LP, Rumours, lifts 15 spots back into the Top 10 midweek (9), so far this week experiencing a 200% uplift versus the same period last week. Meanwhile, their hits collection 50 Years – Don’t Stop jumps nine places after a weekend of sales (14).
