Stevie Nicks revealed she is working on new music

Stevie Nicks Working On New Music: “It’s one of the best things I’ve ever written”

Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks reveals to MOJO she’s working on the follow-up to 2011’s In Your Dreams

Speaking exclusively in the new issue of MOJO, Stevie Nicks has revealed she’s working on new music and plans to go into the studio later this summer.

In this exclusive interview with MOJO, Stevie Nicks revealed she is working on new music, her first solo project since 2011’s "In Your Dreams." (24 Karat Gold was released in 2014, technically a solo album, but was filled with previously written material from the past 4 decades). Nicks plans to enter the studio later this summer to record her new material, including a song about women’s rights and another titled "The Vampire’s Wife," which she describes to Mojo as one of the best things she has ever written. This new music comes after Nicks released "Show Them The Way" in 2020 and a cover of Buffalo Springfield’s "For What It’s Worth" in 2022.

Reflecting on the past, Nicks mentioned her emotional last performance with Tom Petty at Hyde Park in 2017, just months before his death. Nicks, who will headline at Hyde Park again in July, noted that tributes to Petty and Christine McVie are now a significant part of her sets. McVie’s passing in 2022 has profoundly impacted Nicks, who stated that it has effectively ended any possibility of a Fleetwood Mac reunion. Without McVie, Nicks believes the band could not function as it did before.

Nicks also touched on her relationship with Lindsey Buckingham, citing his health issues and the demanding nature of Fleetwood Mac tours as barriers to a potential reunion. Buckingham’s place in the band's last tour was filled by Mike Campbell and Neil Finn, with Finn expressing his surprise at being invited to join the band. Finn, who has since returned to Crowded House, supports Nicks' view that Fleetwood Mac is not currently active.

While Stevie Nicks is moving forward with new solo music, the legacy of Fleetwood Mac seems to be in the past, deeply influenced by the loss of Christine McVie and the challenges faced by its members.

I would be overjoyed if this is true! Stevie is always talking about projects that never come to fruition.
