Stevie Nicks Releases New Single ‘The Dealer’ Off New Collection Of Songs ’24 Carat Gold’

Fans of the ethereal Stevie Nicks, former front woman of Fleetwood Mac can find reason to rejoice. As promised, Stevie Nicks has released a single from her upcoming album 24 Carat Gold. The single is called “The Dealer,” and you can watch the associated music video here:

The song is one that Stevie Nicks reportedly wrote and recorded the song with Fleetwood Mac during 1979 but was never officially released. Bootleg copies made it to the online world, however, which prompted Stevie Nicks to re-record it and add it to her new album. According to Rolling Stone, the new Stevie Nicks album will be somewhat of a retrospective release of some of Stevie’s catalog of past recordings that never made it to an album. 24 Carat Gold‘s official release date is set for October 9, barring any delays, and Stevie Nicks offered the following insight into the inspiration behind the body of work:

“Each song is a love story… They represent my life, the secrets, the broken hearts. These songs are the memories – the 24 karat gold rings in the blue box. These songs are for you.”

This will be Stevie’s first new release since 2011 when she released In Your Dreams. Stevie still tours frequently with Fleetwood Mac and last embarked on tour with them during their Unleashed tour in 2009. She also will be acting as a a mentor to Adam Levine’s team on season seven of NBC’s The Voice when it airs this fall. Is it possible that we’ll get treated to some of Stevie’s new releases during the show? My guess is that is almost a certainty.

In related news, it looks like Fleetwood Mac has been working on a new album too, but it looks like Stevie Nicks will not be part of this new endeavor since she has been dedicating her time to remastering and releasing her new album of material and is gearing up for her time on The Voice. This leads one to wonder: Will there be a Stevie Nicks/Fleetwood Mac tour anytime soon? Usually a new album also means a new tour coming along with it to promote it.
