Stevie Nicks shares new recording of 'Tusk'-era track 'The Dealer' - listen

The track comes from the Fleetwood Mac member's forthcoming '24 Karat Gold: Songs From The Vault' album

Stevie Nicks has shared a new song from her forthcoming double album.

Click above to listen to 'The Dealer', which was originally written and recorded while Fleetwood Mac were working on their 1979 album 'Tusk'. '24 Karat Gold: Songs From The Vault' will be released on October 7. The album is made up of songs that were mostly written by the Fleetwood Mac member between 1969 and 1987 but were recorded recently in Nashville and Los Angeles. The album is produced by Nicks, Dave Stewart and Waddy Wachtel.

Speaking about the album, Nicks commented in a statement: "Most of these songs were written between 1969 and 1987. One was written in 1994 and one in 1995. I included them because they seemed to belong to this special group. Each song is a lifetime. Each song has a soul. Each song has a purpose. Each song is a love story… They represent my life behind the scenes, the secrets, the broken hearts, the broken-hearted and the survivors."

Meanwhile, Fleetwood Mac recently said that they have almost finished eight songs for a possible new album. The recent recordings feature Christine McVie, who announced she was rejoining the band in January, although Nicks was not present at the sessions owing to other commitments.

The band's guitarist Lindsey Buckingham said in an interview with Billboard: "The chemistry was just unbelievable. We're all very excited about the new music. Knowing me, I'm going to be pushing hard for a double album."

Minus Nicks, Fleetwood Mac spent two months at The Village Recorder studio in Los Angeles, working in the same room in which they recorded their 1979 album 'Tusk'. Despite the eight tracks being "75 percent done", the sessions will be put on hold as McVie returns to the UK where she lives. The band is scheduled to begin rehearsals for their world tour this month, meaning it’s unlikely a new album will be released before 2015. Titles for the new tunes include 'Carnival Begin' and 'Red Sun'.
