Stevie Nicks,Â rock’s superstar chanteuse, theÂ “Gold Dust Woman” herself,Â will be releasingÂ the “Live In Chicago” DVD as well as “The Soundstage Sessions” CDÂ – both in stores on March 31st, it wasÂ announced today byÂ Reprise Records.
TheÂ “Live in Chicago”Â DVDÂ includesÂ all the timelessÂ Nicks songs from her solo projects as well asÂ songs written asÂ aÂ member ofÂ the legendary rockersÂ Fleetwood Mac.Â Along with Stevie classicsÂ such asÂ “Stand Back,” “Rhiannon,” “Dreams,” “Gold Dust Woman,” “Landslide” and “Edge of Seventeen,” the DVD also features stunning cover songs, including Dave Matthews’ “Crash Into Me” and a tear-down-the-house finale of Led Zeppelin’s “Rock and Roll.”
“This is the first time since 1985 that I haveÂ had one of my live shows filmed and recorded,” said Nicks.Â “We spent three years perfecting this show, which weÂ began in VegasÂ in October of 2007.Â I could not move on until we filmed this show. Â LuckilyÂ “Soundstage” producer Joe Thomas, who saw the show many times, felt the same way.Â Â I am as proud of this as anything I’ve ever done in my entire career.”
Stevie Nicks “The Soundstage Sessions” CDÂ includes 10 songs from the “Live in Chicago” DVD.Â Nicks broughtÂ the songs from the show toÂ NashvilleÂ and worked once again with Joe Thomas in the studio where they added “Nashville strings”Â and additional vocals.Â The CD featuresÂ a lush orchestral version of “Landslide”Â and other Nicks gems including “Stand Back,” “Crash Into Me,”Â “Sara,” “Fall From Grace”Â andÂ “If Anyone Falls in Love.”
Digital downloads of “Crash Into Me”Â (“I’ve wanted to record this song for the last 10 years,” said Nicks) and “Landslide”Â (orchestralÂ version)Â will be available onÂ Amazonmp3.comÂ on March 17th.Â Â “Enchanted,” an exclusive album track, is scheduled to be availableÂ on March 31st onÂ Amazonmp3.com.Â “Gold Dust Woman” and “Edge of Seventeen” will be available exclusively on iTunes on March 31st.
“We wanted everything on the DVD and CD to look and sound perfect and I think we succeeded,” concluded Nicks.
NicksÂ is currentlyÂ on theÂ Fleetwood MacÂ “Unleashed” Tour, which beganÂ March 1st in Pittsburgh.
