Tour first. Worry about the new album later. That’s the mindset of Stevie Nicks.
“Honestly, I just don’t know about it. This tour has been so hard and so breathtakingly overwhelming,” Nicks said. “I have to look great, I have to feel great, I have to sound great. And I cannot be thinking about future albums or poetry or songs right now. Now we have Europe to conquer. It’s really important that we are spectacular,” she pointed out. “That’s all that I can worry about right now.”
Mick Fleetwood, on the other hand, is itching to get back in the studio. He says he has “a shitload of new songs.”
“I’m like an old racehorse,” he said. “It’s not like I’m ancient ancient, but these things are sort of worn out a bit. I’ve got a deep-freeze in my room in order to do what I’m doing… you take care of yourself. I’m not letting up any – I’m playing harder than I ever played, apparently.”
The new record could still happen. Just not now. Last year Lindsey Buckingham said he was pushing for a double album.
