I was scared to hear Lykke Li’s cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Silver Springs” on the soon-to-be-released album Just Tell Me That You Want Me — A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac as it is my favorite song of all time. I know I like to exaggerate, but I am not exaggerating this time. It is seriously my favorite song. Hence, my expectations were ridiculously high. Honest reaction: I don’t hate it. OK … fine … I like it. It’s good. But Stevie Nicks is still my woman music goddess of life and all others will pale in comparison. You can listen Lykke Li’s version of the song here. After the jump, you can hear some other tracks on the album, which drops on August 14, from Best Coast and The New Pornographers. [Gorilla Vs Bear] Keep reading »
Last night, Christina Applegate and Maya Rudolph’s awesome show “Up All Night” welcomed special guest Stevie Nicks. We had to wait all episode for her to sing, but when she did, it was well worth it: Here she is sharing a “dream” duet with Christina’s character Reagan.
“She’s never going to [play me]. That’s never going to happen unless she cleans up her life and becomes the great actress I feel she can be. Everybody thinks I hate her, and it’s not that at all.”
—Stevie Nicks gives her two cents on Lindsay Lohan saying that she wants to play her in a Fleetwood Mac biopic. Wow, Stevie doesn’t mince words. And a few years ago, she told The New York Times, “Over my dead body. She needs to stop doing drugs and get a grip. Then maybe we’ll talk.” [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Whoa. It is a seriously good week for new music. Euro pop-rockers Architecture in Helsinki release their newest, which includes the song "Contact High," my favorite video of 2011 thus far. Watch now, please. For you folk fans out there, Fleet Foxes have a new one, too. But for my pick of the week, I gotta go with our favorite black magic woman, Stevie Nicks, who is releasing her first solo album in 10 years. The cover of In Your Dreams says it all-it shows Stevie in a witchy black velvet dress holding the reigns of white horse. Translation: expect classic Stevie-style songs of tortured love sung with her signature raspy vocals and passion like none other.
Did Gwyneth Paltrow just go there? I can’t believe my ears. This is her version of Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide” that will appear on her upcoming “Glee” episode. I’m all for the reprisal of Kelly Canter, but playing a country music star does not give her the right to try to play Stevie Nicks. My outrage-o-meter is blinking wildly. Maybe I’m just overreacting because Stevie is my spirit animal. What do you think of Gwyneth’s version of “Landslide”? [NY Mag] Keep reading »
Uh, my celebrity soul mate, Stevie Nicks, is back. Her new album, In Your Dreams, is out in May. This single off the album, “Secret Love,” is a song she’s been working on since the ’70s. No wonder it sounds so Stevie-vintage-wonderful. I really want her to start wearing capes and feathers again. Now I need to know who her secret love is. [The Hairpin] Keep reading »
Kate Hudson totally shut it down when she sang a few bars of “Silver Springs” by Fleetwood Mac on a recent episode of “The Rachel Zoe Project.” This just so happens to be my favorite song of all time. I was delighted to find that Rachel and Kate agree with me. Apparently runway shows + Stevie Nicks = the ultimate fashion experience. I just died. Keep reading »
We were ecstatic to learn that Miss Leather and Lace herself, Stevie Nicks, would be coming out with a new record. The new album is due out sometime next spring and is expected to include collaborations with Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics and Mick Fleetwood, among others. And, she says, we should watch out for a new Fleetwood Mac record too: “Eventually, there will be another Fleetwood Mac record and another tour,” Nicks told The New York Daily News. “But this record is my moment. All next year, it’s going to be this. This is now my turn.” It’s her groove.
News of Stevie’s new record got us thinking about what other old artists and trends we’d like to see revived. After the jump, other comebacks we hope happen soon. Tell us: Who or what do you hope makes a triumphant return? Keep reading »
