Stevie Nicks fans can listen to her new single "Lady" in its entirety via a newly posted lyric video. The song is the Fleetwood Mac star's second single from her upcoming solo album titled, 24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault.
The two-time Grammy winner posted the video on Aug. 25 at her official YouTube page. The re-recorded original, also know by the title "Knocking on Doors," evolved from a 5:30 minute demo, which was written and recorded during sessions for Buckingham Nicks in the early 1970s, which never made the album
The 4:55 minute clip finds the enduring pop diva in fine voice on a soul-searching love ballad, which features the singer-songwriter's timeless lyrics, accompanied by a simple piano arrangement. Written over 40 years ago, the lyrics focus on Nick's insecurity about the future from the perspective of her mid-20s. "The time keeps going on by, and I wonder what is to become of me," she sings. "And I'm unsure, I can't see my way/ And he says, 'Lady, you don't have to see.'"
Nicks rearranged and re-recorded the demo in the studio and has included it among 14 songs on "24 Karat Gold." The album is a collection of self-penned songs, which the pop diva recorded over the years, but never released on an album. Co-produced by Nicks along with ex-Eurythmics co-frontman Dave Stewart and longtime Nick's bandmember and session guitarist Waddy Wachtel, the tracks were newly recorded in Nashville and mixed in Los Angeles.
Nicks previously previewed five other tracks from the album earlier this month, including "The Dealer," "If You were My Love," "Mabel Normand," "Belle Fleur" and "All the Beautiful Worlds." "24 Karat Gold" is available for pre-order and will be released Oct. 7 on the Reprise label. Click here for more information.
The diminutive songstress will hit the road this fall with the reunited Fleetwood Mac classic line-up, which will include the newly rejoined Christine McVie. The tour kicks off the tour in on Sept. 20 in Minneapolis, Minneapolis, at Target Centre and wrap up in on Dec. 14 in Dallas, Texas, at American Airlines Centre. For more information, click here.
