Stevie Nicks has collaborated with the Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart to release a track to raise funds for Ukraine. You can check it out below.
Titled ‘Face To Face’, the single is part of Stewart’s project ‘Collaborate For Peace’, in collaboration with Ukranian musician Serhii Babkin and Russian Boris Grebenschikov.
All proceeds from this project will go towards Global United24 initiative. This was set up by Ukranian president Voldymyr Zelensky.

Nicks Has “Ukraine and its people in my heart”
Releasing a statement, former Fleetwood Mac singer Stevie Nicks once again emphasised that the ongoing conflict in Ukraine is not over. She also insists that people must continue to support them.
“Since the day the war began, I have carried Ukraine and its people in my heart. I am so honoured to sing on this song written by my friend Dave Stewart, Boris Grebenshchikov and Serhii Babkin”, Nicks said.
“I hope it reminds people to continue to support Ukraine. I remind people during my shows to remember — this war is not over…”.
Dave Stewart also added that he wanted the song to be “peaceful”.
“I wanted to write a gentle, peaceful song after seeing all the horrible images coming out of Ukraine”, he also wrote.
“The song is about how all war is horrific and it’s written from the perspective of a young 18-year-old having to march off to war, not really understanding what he’s getting into”.
Serhii Babkin also added a statement.
“It’s a great honour for me to be a part of this song and to record with such legendary musicians. I’m very grateful to Dave Stewart, Boris Grebenshchikov and Stevie Nicks for their support of Ukraine. Today, Ukrainian people suffer so much because of the war that Russia unleashed. I want to express not only that terrible pain but also a hope. With my part of the song, I want to say: It won’t always be like this. It’s a cruel fight between Good and Evil, Light and Darkness. And Light will prevail, I truly believe it will!”.
Last week, Stevie Nicks also performed a classic track on stage alongside Eddie Vedder. More on this here.
