Nicks has been collecting, oftentimes via YouTube, stray and forgotten tracks from over the years with an eye toward re-recording them for a new collection of songs. The results, tentatively dubbed 24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault, could be released as early as October 2014 via Warner Bros/Reprise, according to Nicks’ publicist.
“We went on to YouTube and we found all the songs that, somehow, were taken from my house or picked up or loaned out or whatever,” Nicks said after recieving the BMI Icon Award. “There was like 25 songs that the fans really wanted me to record. We went to Nashville, and we recorded 17 songs. So they’re like all starting from like 1969 maybe?”
The tracks were initially put down in Nashville, with Nicks, Waddy Wachtel and Dave Stewart — who oversaw Nicks’ most recent solo studio effort — serving as producers. Additional work is being done on the songs now in Los Angeles.
