Nicks solo album nearly done

Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks is nearing completion on a solo album, which she hopes to release in October.

It has a working title of 24 Karat Gold: Songs From The Vault – a reference to a bootlegged but never officially released Nicks track. She’s seeking to reclaim a number of leaked pieces she’d never completed.

Nicks says: “We went onto YouTube and we found songs that, somehow, were taken from my house, picked up, loaned out or whatever. They’re like, starting from like 1969, maybe? I call them my 24 karat gold songs.”

And she reveals she’s never worked so quickly on a project: ‘I’ve done 18 tracks in three weeks. It’s the fastest I have ever recorded.”

The album is being co-produced by Dave Stewart and Waddy Wachtel.

Meanwhile, Fleetwood Mac are working on their first record with Christine McVie since she ended her retirement and rejoined the band. Guitarist Lindsey Buckingham recently said it could be a double-length release.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
