Stevie Nicks has shared her first new music in six years, ‘Show Them the Way’. Produced by Greg Kurstin, the track features Dave Grohl on drums and Dave Stewart on guitar. A music video directed by Cameron Crow is set to come out later today. For now, listen to the track below, along with a stripped-back acoustic version.
‘Show Them the Way’ includes references to Martin Luther King Jr., John Lewis, and John F. Kennedy. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Nicks revealed that the new song was inspired by a dream she had in the lead-up to the 2008 presidential election where she was playing a political benefit concert in the Hamptons. It was only this year that she decided to record the track, seeing it as a hopeful balm during this “very strange and dangerous time.”
In 2014, Nicks released the LP 24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault. A companion live album and concert film to that album is set for release on October 30th.
