Stevie Nicks has released her first solo song in six years, "Show Them The Way," a powerful, melancholic, political song that connects the civil rights era to present day. It sounds like classic Stevie Nicks, and it's the kind of song where Stevie leaves you hanging on every single word.
Stevie co-wrote the song with The Bird and the Bee's Greg Kurstin (who's also worked with Adele, Paul McCartney, and many others), and Greg also mixed, produced, and played several instruments on the track. Dave Grohl drummed, Eurythmics' Dave Stewart played guitar, and Stevie's longtime backing singers Sharon Celani and Lori Nicks (her sister-in-law) sang backup. The song comes with an equally powerful video by Cameron Crowe that's made up of black-and-white photography of protests from both the civil rights era and today, and shots of Martin Luther King Jr, John Kennedy, and more.
