Stevie Nicks has revealed that she’s busy working on a multimedia project based around her 1975 Fleetwood Mac classic “Rhiannon.”
Nicks told Rolling Stone, “Last year I made a pitch to everybody that when this Fleetwood Mac tour is over. I’m taking next year off because I want to work on my Rhiannon book/movie (based on the original Welsh myth that inspired her song).
She went on to explain, “I have some Rhiannon poetry that I have written over the last 30 years that I’ve kept very quiet. I’m thinking, ‘Well here I have all this time and I have a recording setup.’ And I’m thinking I’m going to start doing some recording. I’m going to start putting some of these really beautiful poems to music, and I have the ability to record them.”
Stevie also went on to offer up some hopeful words in the face of the ongoing pandemic: “We have to believe, right? We have to believe that this is gonna go away. We have to believe that the government of the United States is going to, at some point, completely turn around and do the right thing. . . Everybody’s gonna have to keep themselves safe. And right now it seems to me that the government doesn’t know what they’re doing. And nobody’s on the same page. That scares me.”
