She will re-record many of the tracks she has worked on over the years, working with Dave Stewart and Waddy Watchel on production duties.
Speaking to the Associated Press, Stevie Nicks said: "We went onto You Tube and we found all the songs that, somehow, were taken from my house or picked up or loaned out or whatever ...
Album producer Dave Stewart (of the Eurythmics) is also a compulsive videographer; he and Nicks are named as codirectors, although she dismissed the credit, saying, "It was very nice of them, but I didn't direct this." The documentary, recently released on DVD, was spurred by Dave Grohl: when Nicks lamented to him that her album had died, he told her that the only way to revive it was to release a film.
In an exclusive excerpt from his memoir Sweet Dreams Are Made of This: A Life in Music, obtained by Billboard.com, the British singer/songwriter recalls, "It wasn’t really a party: just Stevie and her singers being very speedy, laughing and talking."The house seemed enormous to me, so I wandered around, and when I came back to the living room, they had all disappeared into a bathroom for what seemed like hours. At around three in the morning, I ended up saying to myself, ‘OK, I’m really tired now and I have no idea where I am or which hotel Annie and the band are staying in’."I just went to bed in one of the four bedrooms upstairs.
I woke up at about 5am to the sound of doors rustling open and in the half-light saw Stevie opening and closing closets, as if it was the middle of the afternoon.
"We would break for an hour, an hour and a half, and we would do what they used to in the Twenties, when they had Hemingway and Coco Chanel and Nureyev and Man Ray, and they would have dinner every Sunday night," Nicks said. But whoever he is, he's the master of ceremonies." And Nicks? But we finally decided that we also didn't want to not play.
"They would talk and gossip about politics and the world and people, and talk about music and photography." After dinner, Stewart would go home to his two young daughters, while Nicks and her singers would work late into the night on the next day's vocal parts.
