Film chronicles the making of her seventh album
Stevie Nicks will release what’s being billed as an “intimate” documentary, titled In Your Dreams, on December 3rd. The film will chronicle the making of the Fleetwood Mac singer’s 2011 solo album, In Your Dreams – a period she has called “the greatest year of my life.” When it was released, In Your Dreams was Nicks’ first album in a decade, and it featured several songs cowritten and coproduced by Eurythmics founder Dave Stewart. Stewart also co-produced and co-directed the documentary.
The film will be available in different configurations, one of which – the limited-edition deluxe DVD bundle – comes with a copy of the film signed by Nicks, a limited-edition handwritten letter by Nicks and never-before-seen photos. It is currently sold out. Fans seeking an autograph, however, can attend a DVD signing at Barnes and Noble at the Grove in Hollywood on December 4th at 7:00 pm.
The documentary shines a light on Nicks’s personal life, according to a press release, and shows her writing songs, tap-dancing and attending costume parties and feasts. It’s said to include cameos by Mick Fleetwood, Reese Witherspoon and, quizzically, Edgar Allan Poe, as well as a white stallion, owls and “vampires” who appear in “home video–style music videos.” Lastly, it also includes a look at previously unseen seen pictures of Nicks’s childhood and several candid photos taken over the past 35 years.
In other Nicks news, the noted witch enthusiast will be appearing on an episode of American Horror Story: Coven playing a role she knows intimately: herself. She filmed her appearance while Fleetwood Mac took a break from touring, as John McVie underwent cancer treatment. “She called and said, ‘I’m now available, sadly enough, if you wanna use me,'” the show’s creator, Ryan Murphy, recently said. “So I said, ‘Let’s do it!’ So she’s flying in for like two days and doing her scenes. I know every person in the show is like, ‘I better be in that goddamn scene!’ It’s funny.”
