Stevie Nicks Releasing New Album ’24 Karat Gold — Songs From the Vault’ in October
By Shannon Carlin
Stevie Nicks has a new album on the way, but it’s actually not that new.
According to Rolling Stone, her upcoming release 24 Karat Gold — Songs from the Vault will be out Oct. 7 on Warner Bros. and will feature songs written by Nicks between 1969 and 1987, along with another two that were written in 1994 and 1995.
In a recent interview, Nicks decided to revisit the previously lost songs after checking out the bootlegs on YouTube.
“We went onto YouTube and we found all the songs that, somehow, were taken from my house or picked up or loaned out or whatever … and we went to Nashville (and recorded them),” Nicks said. “So they’re like all starting from like 1969 maybe? I call them my 24 karat gold songs.”
Nicks has a surprise in store for vinyl fans, who will be able to grab a copy of a limited edition double LP on Sept. 29.
“Each song is a lifetime. Each song has a soul. Each song has a purpose. Each song is a love story,” Nicks said in a statement. “They represent my life behind the scenes, the secrets, the broken hearts, the broken hearted and the survivors. These songs are the memories — the 24 karat gold rings in the blue box. These songs are for you.”
The artwork for her upcoming album — her first since 2011’s In Your Dreams — will feature never-before-seen Polaroids taken by Nicks throughout her career. The deluxe edition of the CD release will include a book filled with 48 pages of pictures from Nicks’ private collection, along with two bonus tracks.
Starting Aug. 5, fans will get a sneak peek at Nicks’ new album via her Instagram, where she’ll be previewing the record.
Fleetwood Mac kick off their On With The Show U.S. tour Sept. 30 in Minneapolis, MN. It’s the first tour in 16 years to feature Christine McVie since she retired from the band in 1998. It also marks the band’s first trek since John McVie was diagnosed with cancer.
