Stevie Nicks will open the vaults to release an album of newly recorded old unused songs in October.
’24 Karat Gold’ will features songs mainly written between 1969 and 1987 as well as a few songs from the 90s.
“Most of these songs were written between 1969 and 1987. One was written in 1994 and one in 1995. I included them because they seemed to belong to this special group. Each song is a lifetime. Each song has a soul. Each song has a purpose. Each song is a love story… 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,” commented Nicks.
Like her previous album ‘In Your Dreams’, ’24 Karat Gold’ was produced by Dave Stewart with Waddy Wachtel and co-produced by Nicks. The album was recorded in Nashville and Los Angeles.
Stevie Nicks will release two versions of the album. A deluxe edition will include never-before seen Polaroid photos taken over Stevie’s career and two bonus tracks.
No track list has been announced as of the date of publication for the album; however, an entry was posted on Wikipedia, since taken down, that was said to include the official track list for the set.
