Friday morning (Aug. 26) on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America,’ Fleetwood Mac‘s Stevie Nicks played a handful of songs and teased fans with her thoughts on a possible reunion with the band that first made her famous.

The singer shared ‘For What it’s Worth‘ from ‘In Your Dreams,’ her first new album in ten years, and also played the classic Mac hits ‘Rhiannon’ and ‘Landslide.’ This created a natural occasion for her to talk about a potential Fleetwood reunion. “It’s always in the wings,” Nicks told GMA (and a couple of thousand excited fans in attendance) about the possibility. “It’s like we who are in those kind of bands, those bands are always there.”

“And you never break up your band,” she adds with a stern look towards her interviewer. “That’s not a good idea, so you always have your band. Lindsey’s (Buckingham) just released a new record, I’ve got a new record. So when we follow that path to the end, then Fleetwood Mac is always there.”

Nicks’ performance of ‘For What it’s Worth’ was considerably more inspired than her rendition of the classic songs. The single was written after her tour with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Heartbreaker Mike Campbell helped her with the project (and played guitar during her GMA set), as did Buckingham and one-time Eurythmic Dave Stewart.

It took ten years for Nicks to release ‘In Your Dreams’ because record executives convinced her that piracy on the internet made recording new music as fruitless project. She believed them. “I did listen then, but I stopped listening about a year-and-a-half ago,” she says as fans begin applauding.
