Warner Bros. RecordsAs Fleetwood Mac prepares launch a new North American tour, the band has announced plans to release a career-spanning, 50-track compilation celebrating its 50th anniversary on November 16. 50 Years — Don’t Stop will be available as a three-CD set, a five-LP vinyl collection, a digital download and via streaming services.

The album delves into all eras of Fleetwood Mac’s history, including its early days as a blues outfit led by guitarist Peter Green; the early 1970s, when Bob Welch and Christine McVie were its lead singers and main songwriters; and its commercial heyday that coincided with Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham joining the band.

The first disc of the three-CD edition features highlights from Fleetwood Mac’s catalog from 1968 through 1974. It includes such U.K. hits as “Black Magic Woman,” “Man of the World,” “Oh Well” and the chart-topping instrumental “Albatross.”

The second disc focuses on the hugely successful period from 1975 to 1980, when Nicks and Buckingham joined McVie to produce such enduring tunes as “Over My Head,” “Rhiannon,” “Say You Love Me,” “Go Your Own Way,” “Don’t Stop,” “You Make Loving Fun,” “Tusk,” “Sara” and the #1 smash “Dreams.”

The third CD spans from 1982 to 2013, when Fleetwood Mac issued its most recent studio recordings. It features ’80s hits like “Hold Me,” “Gypsy,” “Big Love,” “Little Lies” and “Everywhere,” rarities such as rarities “Paper Doll” and “As Long as You Follow,” a live version of the Nicks gem “Silver Springs,” and “Sad Angel” from the 2013 EP Extended Play.

A 20-track CD and digital edition of 50 Years — Don’t Stop also will be released.
