It has recently became official. Fleetwood is once again a five-piece band.

Drummer Mick Fleetwood announced that singer and keyboardist Christine McVie is returning to Fleetwood Mac, during a Saturday low-key concert in Hawaii. The news was later confirmed on Monday. McVie first joined Fleetwood Mac in 1970, after marrying guitarist John McVie. She would later become one of the band’s key songwriters along with Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham, writing classic hits including “Don’t Stop”, “You Make Loving Fun”, “Over My Head”, and “Little Lies”. McVie left the band in 1998.

Last year, rumors of McVie rejoining Fleetwood Mac were sparked, when she joined them during a London concert. They now hope to plan a possible tour some time this year.

In other music news, Sony/ATV executives have settled with the family members of Marvin Gaye, over accusations of copyright infringement, stemming over claims that Thicke 2013 summer hit “Blurred Lines” sounded a little too similar to Gaye’s 1977 chart-topper “Got to Give it Up”.

The agreement stated that the bosses at Sony/ATV will not be a part of any potential trial between the Gaye family and Thicke. The singer first sued to be protected from a potential plagiarism suit, claiming that his song was not a copy of any of Gaye’s music. The Gaye family later countersued him and collaborator Pharell Williams. They also face claims from Bridgeport Music, alleging that “Blurred Lines” also bears striking similarities to Funkadelic’s “Sexy Ways”. Thicke has also tried to reach a settlement with Gaye’s relatives, but that was later rejected.
