Christine McVie was not only the songwriter and vocalist for many of Fleetwood Mac's biggest hits (Don't StopEverywhere, and Little Lies), but she also released some stunning solo albums during her Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame career. Rhino puts those recordings centre stage on the very first compilation to spotlight McVie as a solo artist.

Songbird features songs that were remastered by legendary producer Glyn Johns, who worked closely with McVie on the project. It includes a selection of songs from two of her solo albums - 1984's Christine McVie and 2004's In the Meantime - plus two previously unreleased studio recordings including "Slowdown," which was originally written for the 1985 film American Flyers.

Another song that has never been released is All You Gotta Do, a duet that Christine recorded with George Hawkins while making In the Meantime. The track was never finished, and Johns added Ricky Peterson on Hammond and Ethan Johns on drums and guitar.

The album also includes an orchestral version of Songbird from Fleetwood Mac's Rumours album, which has become one of McVie's signature tracks. T The new version pairs McVie's iconic vocals from the original recording with a gorgeous new string arrangement by six-time Grammy Award-winning composer and arranger Vince Mendoza.
