Stevie Nicks returns this fall with a new album, her first solo release since 2011’s In Your Dreams.
Today (Aug. 5), the first taste of that new album is here, with the audio and accompanying lyric video for “The Dealer” out now.
A mid-tempo rocker, “The Dealer” features multi-part harmonies and rootsy guitar, as well as occasional piano.
Much like Kenny Rogers’ “The Gambler,” “The Dealer” utilizes card game imagery in its lyrics. “I was the mistress of my fate / I was the card shark,” Nicks sings. “If I’d’ve looked a little ahead / I’d’ve run away.”
“The Dealer” is off 24 Karat Gold – Songs from the Vault, a collection of songs recorded over different periods in Nicks’ career, dating all the way back to 1969.
