In addition to releasing Little Darlin’, Rhino Records have revealed plans to rerelease In The Meantime and her self-titled 1984 debut solo album. Her nephew, Dan Perfect, is overseeing the project.

In a statement to Rolling Stone, he shared that “When my aunt Christine McVie died unexpectedly last year, plans were already afoot for the re-release of this solo album, which is perhaps her most personal and intimate project,” 

Adding, “I dearly wish that she could have lived to see this re-release as she would have been delighted.”
