Stevie Nicks released "The Dealer," the first song off hotly anticipated upcoming archival release "24 Karat Gold - Songs From the Vault."
As Ultimate Classic Rock notes, "24 Karat Gold," comprised of items from Nicks' immense backlog of material from 1969-87, is the singer's first project since 2011's "In Your Dreams." The album, due on October 7 and available for pre-order now through Nicks' official website, will be released in a variety of formats - including a limited-edition version that comes with a 48-page book stocked with never-before seen photographs, a heavy stock lithograph, and two additional bonus tracks.
"Each song is a lifetime," Nicks says, in a news_backup release. "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."
Nicks is set to kick off a reunion tour with Fleetwood Mac in September, the group's first with Christine McVie since 1998.
