Tusk was a double album released in 1979 (see 1979 in music) by Fleetwood Mac. Considered somewhat "quirky" due to Lindsey Buckingham's apparent attempts to allow punk rock and New Wave influence into his work, Tusk did not achieve the level of success of its predecessor, Rumours.

The album was one of the first to employ digital mixing. The project apparently made some record executives nervous, and not only for its million-dollar production budget; the label had expected a re-working of the same formula that had made Rumours successful. The luxurious packaging and product that resulted topped the UK album charts on 10 November 1979, and the U.S. a week later.[2]
