Stevie Nicks has finally unveiled the track ‘Secret Love,’ the first single from In Your Dreams, her first studio album in ten years.

“I am not asking forever from you / I’m just asking to be held for a while,” Nicks sings on the melodic mid-tempo song.

Though she persists with “a timeless search for love that might work,” Nicks eventually professes, “My secret love secretly died.”

Producer Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics has substantially updated the demo version with more vibrant drums, subtle synths and electric guitars that bring some brightness to the melancholy lyrics.

Stewart co-wrote half of the songs on In Your Dreams, the seventh solo studio album by Nicks and first since 2001’s Trouble in Shangri-La. The record is set for a May 3 release on Reprise.

Last month, Nicks appeared with Rod Stewart on Ellen, and the two plan to hit the road together for the first time on the Heart & Soul Tour, which kicks off March 20 in Sunrise, Fla.
