Stevie Nicks has been pretty busy these days. If she isn’t touring the world with her band Fleetwood Mac, then she’s signing on to The Voice, and at Adam Levine’s wedding, making beautiful music in Cabo.
All of this performing must have struck a chord with Stevie because she’s revealed that she’s coming out with a new solo album. The LP is titled 24 Karat Gold and will be out in stores on October 7. For those who want a special edition vinyl, or just want to get your hands on the album first, fans will be able to buy a limited edition double LP on September 29.
24 Karat Gold will be Nicks’ follow up since her 2011 solo album In Your Dreams, which she recorded in Nashville and Los Angeles. If you’re looking for a particularly new sound from Stevie, you might be a bit disappointed as these songs were recorded between 1969 and 1987. Then again, you can’t get any better than a never-before-released album from Stevie’s golden years.
These fans seem to agree with this sentiment:
So excited for new music from Stevie!! ~Bella http://t.co/3EQj8RAzfw

The singer told The Associated Press, via Rolling Stone,that the older tracks made their way to a new LP after she was inspired by hearing bootlegs from a few YouTube videos. Apparently this made Stevie want to go back into the vault and pull out a few goodies for her fans.
“[W]e found all the songs that, somehow, were taken from my house or picked up or loaned out or whatever. I call them my 24 karat gold songs.”
She continued to express what the album represents to her as an artist and as a person:
“Each song is a lifetime. 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.”
In addition to the brand new solo album, fans will be privy to never-before-seen polaroids taken by Nicks throughout her career. The deluxe photobook will be comprised of 48 pages of new/old pictures.
