Stevie Nicks Trouble in Shangri-La (2001)

In the News: Stevie Nicks

In 1994, STEVIE NICKS was watching the O.J. SIMPSON trial when she came up with the title of her next album: Trouble in Shangri-La. “It’s the whole idea of achieving paradise,” says Nicks, “and how difficult it is to handle it. Trouble in Shangri-La is about a lot of people, including myself.” Nearly eight years later, on May 1st, the album will hit stores. Says Nicks, “I love these songs, and I’m so excited to share them with the world.”

Shangri-La was mostly written by Nicks but also features a variety of guest stars. Sheryl Crow plays some guitar and co-produced five of the album’s thirteen tracks, Macy Gray sings on “Bombay Sapphire,” and Dixie Chick Natalie Maines duets with Nicks on “Too Far From Texas.” “I’m really a harmony singer, so I love to sing with other lead singers,” says Nicks, who, in addition to her work with Fleetwood Mac, has topped the charts duetting with both Tom Petty and Don Henley. Another guest is Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham, who plays guitar on a song called “I Miss You.” Is the song about her former lover? “Well, it’s not,” says Nicks. “But a lot of these songs are about Lindsey.”

Expect Nicks to hit the road this summer. And, if she has anything to say about it, another Fleetwood Mac album remains a possibility. “I would love to see us do one more record,” she says. “I’ll be doing my Trouble in Shangri-La thing for however long, and next year we could be on our way to a Fleetwood Mac album. Life is short. Why wait?”
