This year has so far been extremely busy for the legendary Stevie Nicks. She is all ready to set out for her tour with a reunited Fleetwood Mac and as if this wasn’t enough on her schedule, she is also working on her own new solo album which is in the midst of completion. Though it hasn’t been confirmed but the album title is most likely going to be 24 Karat Gold: Songs From the Vault" which is going to include lost and stray tracks which Stevie Nicks has written and recorded over the years. All selections for the album have been newly recorded and co-produced by Nicks, Dave Stewart and Waddy Wachtel.
Nicks' publicist, Liz Rosenberg, has stated that Nicks is planning on an October release for her album on Reprise/Warner Bros. Records some of the tunes have been recorded in Nashville and now she will continue with the rest in Los Angeles. The singer has recorded 18 tracks in only three weeks and according to her this album is the "fastest I have ever recorded."
She gave an acceptance speech at the BMI Pop Awards in Los Angeles last night where she revealed more about her album and she was also given the BMI Icon award for her songwriting achievements. Some of her solo hit singles include "Edge of Seventeen (Just Like the White Winged Dove)" and "Stand Back."
While talking to the press, Stevie Nicks went to saying that "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). So they're like all starting from like 1969 maybe? I call them my 24 karat gold songs."
