Stevie Nicks announces via handwritten note that new music is coming Friday

Stevie Nicks announced on Wednesday that she’s releasing new music the classic Stevie way: via a heartfelt handwritten note.

On lined paper in her cursive scribble, the Fleetwood Mac star wrote: “So excited to release my new song this Friday. It’s called ‘For What Its Worth’ and it was written by Stephen Stills in 1966 It meant something to me then, and it means something to me now, I always wanted to interpret it [through] a woman’s eyes – and it seems that today, in the times we live in – he has a lot to say.”

“I can’t wait for you to hear it,” she said, sign with a heart.

The rock ‘n’ roll icon shared her message on social media, and Twitter was indeed very excited by the news.

“STEVIE NICKS RELEASES NEW MUSIC SOON”, a user wrote.

Another wrote, “What other rock legend announces something special for fans by sharing a handwritten journal page? Thank you! Can’t wait to hear your voice on this awesome song! ♥️ #ForWhatItsWorth.”

Stephen Stills’ social media page also commented“I can’t wait to hear that.”

Stills, known for being a member of the supergroup Crosby, Stills & Nash, wrote the song “For What It’s Worth” for Buffalo Springfield to record. It was released as a single on December 23, 1966 and reportedly reached number 7 on the billboard Hot 100 in 1967.

The song is known for the iconic chorus, “It’s time to stop, hey, what’s that sound? Everybody staring, what’s going on?”

Originally, sources say, the song was written about rallies of young people protesting anti-vagrancy laws and the closure of Pandora’s Box nightclub in West Hollywood, California. However, the song was used for some anti-war protests, mainly due to the nature of the lyrics, including lines like “There are battle lines being drawn / Nobody’s right if everything the world is wrong / Young people speak their mind / Get so much resistance from behind.”

The song has already been covered by artists like Ozzy Osbourne and Queensryche, but there’s no doubt that Nicks will bring his own level of charm to the song with his enchanting vocals.

The rock ‘n’ roll legend is currently touring North America and his next concert is Thursday in Bangor, Maine.

Nicks’ release of ‘For What It’s Worth’ will be her first new musical release since 2014, when she released the album 24k Gold: Songs from the Vault, which was a collection of re-recorded demos written between 1969 and 1987. Before that, his last album was In your dreams in 2011, an album of new songs, one of which was also titled “For What It’s Worth”.
