Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks has shared a new solo single, ‘Show Them The Way’, recorded with Dave Grohl on drums and produced by Greg Kurstin.
Nicks recently discussed the track with the Associated Press, in which the Fleetwood Mac singer revealed that the song was inspired by a dream she had in 2008 where she played at a political benefit attended by Dr Martin Luther King Jr., John Lennon, John Lewis, John F. Kennedy and Bobby Kennedy. The inspiration is reflected literally in the lyrics.
“I was ready for the Kennedys/ I don’t know if it was 1960 or 1963,” Nicks sings on the track. “Everything was timeless, even me/ I wasn’t old, I wasn’t young, I was just part of their dream/ A shadow walked with me down the hall, it was Martin Luther King.”
Nicks is set to release her new concert film 24 Karat Gold The Concert, which is to be screened at cinemas, some drive-ins and exhibition spaces around the world for just two nights on October 21st and October 25th. It captures Nicks at her peak, performing in Indianapolis and Pittsburgh back in 2017. It’s a set full of favourites from both her solo canon and Fleetwood Mac’s.
As well as the concert film, there will also be a new live album Live in Concert: The 24 Karat Gold Tour which will have 17 tracks from the show on record and ready to be played at will. That includes some real heavy hitters such as ‘Rhiannon’, ‘Landslide’, ‘Edge of Seventeen’ and many, many more. But there are also some rarely heard gems too including the first-ever live recording of ‘Crying in the Night’.
“The ’24 Karat Gold Tour’ was my all-time favourite tour,” the double hall-of-famer said in a statement. “I not only got to sing my songs but I was able to tell their stories for the first time. I love having the opportunity to share this concert with my fans. From me to you – 24 Karat Gold.”
