BURBANK, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/05/14 -- Today marks the first day Stevie Nicks fans can pre
order 24 Karat Gold - Songs From The Vault as well as hear samples from the album and view exclusive content from the highly anticipated CD, Nicks' first album in three years, it was confirmed today by her label, Warner Bros. Records.
Commented Nicks about the release of 24 Karat Gold: "I used to make cassettes of my songs and hand them out. But to know that these songs have finally been recorded with the same love they were originally created is joyous for me. I picked 12 songs from about 40 demos made from '69 - '87 and one each from 94 and 95. These songs are all about love and heartbreak -- how to pick up the pieces -- how to keep moving... I'm really chronicling love from the very beginning. When you write a song and it doesn't go on a record, it floats around in your life for years. I took myself back to the time when these songs were written... Sometimes I can't remember what happened yesterday but I remember so well what happened through the whole period of time that I wrote these songs. You think about them and go over them and they live inside of you until they becomes part of your world. These songs are now 24 Karat Gold."
"The only way this would have been possible was because of the amazing 'Nashvillians' as I named the brilliant musicians we worked with in Nashville. They were a great band -- tantamount to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers... We were awestruck just watching them. We had two weeks to lay down the tracks... This was going to be a fast moving train... That is how we roll and that IS how we rolled!! And we did it."
A special version of 24 Karat Gold will be available on STEVIENICKSOFFICIAL.com which will also feature a lyric video for "The Dealer." In addition, Stevie will be unveiling snippets from every song on her album each week through her Instagram account at "stevienicksofficial".
Nicks, a multi-Grammy award winning, multi-platinum selling Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee is scheduled to embark on the Fleetwood Mac 'On With The Show' Tour with recently returned bandmate Christine McVie beginning September 30th.
