Rumours – Fleetwood Mac


From Wikipedia

Rumours is the eleventh studio album by the British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac, released on 4 February 1977 by Warner Bros. Records. Largely recorded in California in 1976, it was produced by the band with Ken Caillat and Richard Dashut. The recording sessions took place in the aftermath of several relationship breakups among the band members in addition to heavy drug use, both of which shaped the album’s direction and lyrics.

Recorded with the intention of making “a pop album” that would expand on the commercial success of their self-titled 1975 album, the music of Rumours is characterized by a mix of electric and acoustic instrumentation, accented rhythms, guitars, and keyboards, while its lyrics concern personal and often troubled relationships. Its release was postponed by delays in the mixing process. Following the album’s release, Fleetwood Mac undertook worldwide concert tours in support of it. Rumours became the band’s first number-one album on the UK Albums Chart and also topped the US Billboard 200. The songs “Go Your Own Way“, “Dreams“, “Don’t Stop“, and “You Make Loving Fun” were released as singles, all of which reached the US Top 10, with “Dreams” reaching number one.
