OMG everyone calm down LOL
It will be released when he's ready. Tours promote albums so I think its too early to release. Nothing wrong with a late 2021 release and tour to shortly follow.

If he doesn’t release it now, he might as well overdub Mick in and call it Fleetwood Buckingham, because the “Fleetwood” name is the only way he wouldn’t get completely lost in what will be a completely oversaturated market.
Maybe he can do the same trick he used to make Little Lies a big hit.

Hard to leave the band when he’s already been fired.

i'm not sure in Lindsey's case. we know he's really bad with marketing and advertising himself, which is partly why i think he trusts his new management / Rhino, and why he sold his publishing - including 50 % of any new stuff going forward - to a company that he hopes will place it better than he would.

when you look at some of the people he collaborated with lately, a lot seems to be coming through Rhino / WBs, and also Brandy Clark i think is a fan (there were pics of her and Lindsey backstage at some show he went to see and she was gushing over him at the time).

at M&Gs back in 2018, Lindsey told some fans that the album is done and Rhino is holding it back to add some duets with younger artists on it. that can go either way of course - Lindsey trusting WBs got us no original GOS and waiting for FM/SYW forever. but i would love to see some interesting collaborations and unlike LB, many of those collaborators are usually great in advertising and social media. which is nice for cementing his legendary status (it's not exactly what Mike Murphy did for SN with AHS on her edge of 70, but still very nice).

that all said i'm with everyone who is saying that either whole album - or at least several singles - should be released during this year / in the pandemic, instead of waiting for the flood of releases when vaccine herd immunity (hopefully!!) kicks in.

I'd love to hear new music too, but I'm not all that annoyed by him waiting so he can tour behind it, which very well could be 2022 now. I've had much bigger dissappointments the past year.

With that said I hope he's recording like a MF with all this downtime, I'd love to believe he's got 3-4 albums worth of material ready to go now.

During the recent Q&A, he said he has not been working on any new music, but that it comes in cycles and expected to get back in the studio soon.
