Stevie Nicks Slows Things Down For ‘Lady’: Listen
By Shannon Carlin
Stevie Nicks is gearing up to release her new album 24 Karat Gold — Songs from the Vault this fall, which has her unearthing old demos and unreleased tracks. She’s already given fans the mid-tempo rocker “The Dealer,” and now she’s offering up the soft piano ballad, “Lady.” Watch the lyric video above.
As Stereogum points out, the Fleetwood Mac singer’s latest is actually an updated version of an old Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham demo called “Knockin’ On Doors.” On the introspective track, she sings about getting older and what her fate may be: “I know that things gotta change/But how to change them, isn’t clear.”
24 Karat Gold — Songs from the Vault will be out Oct. 27. But 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.”
Fleetwood Mac kicks off its On With The Show U.S. tour Sept. 30 in Minneapolis, Minn. 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.
