About this album

Rumours is the eleventh studio album by British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac. Largely recorded in California during 1976, it was produced by the band with Ken Caillat and Richard Dashut and was released on 4 February 1977 by Warner Bros. Records. The record peaked at the top of both the main United States Billboard chart and the United Kingdom Albums Chart. “Go Your Own Way”, “Don’t Stop”, “Dreams”, and “You Make Loving Fun” were released as singles. A Grammy Award winner, Rumours is Fleetwood Mac’s most successful release with sales of over 40 million copies worldwide, and diamond certifications in several countries, including the US, UK and Australia.

The band wanted to expand on the commercial success of the 1975 record Fleetwood Mac, but struggled with relationship breakups before recording started. The Rumours studio sessions were marked by hedonistic behaviour and interpersonal strife between Fleetwood Mac members; these experiences informed the album’s lyrics. Influenced by pop music, the record’s tracks were recorded using a combination of acoustic and electric instruments. The mixing process delayed the completion of Rumours, but was finished by the end of 1976. Following the album’s release in 1977, Fleetwood Mac undertook worldwide promotional tours.

Rumours garnered widespread critical acclaim. Praise centred on its production quality and harmonies, which frequently relied on the interplay among three vocalists. The record has inspired the work of musical acts in different genres.

    I can't believe I've never noticed the set of balls hanging on the album cover until just now...I'm utterly stunned.

    This album overshadows the other ones too much. And I find Tusk, Mirage and Tango in the Night much more enjoyable.

    deserves the recognition it has, just a brilliantly structured album with such emotion in it

    @DavidSmith98 Most of those glee fans would have listened to Go Your Own Way or another song before as well.

    I used to hate this album as a kid. My mom used to play it in the morning on weekends. Listening to it now, I like it but it drags quite a bit in the middle.

    i understand glee helps show people this "older" music because not everyone is born awesome, but i really would expect more people to dig into stuff like Rumours on their own even now. it's sold what 25 million? 35 million? come on it's not hard to find
