It’s easy to forget that even the most legendary musicians grapple with self-doubt. Stevie Nicks reminds us of that in a new documentary, In Your Dreams, which chronicles the making of her album of the same name.
In the exclusive clip below, Nicks discusses the recording of “Secret Love,” a song she wrote for Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours but never properly recorded for over 30 years. Oddly enough, a demo from those sessions found its way to YouTube, leaving Nicks with some mixed emotions.
“I said, ‘I don’t know how to feel about that,” because I would have been happier if nobody ever heard ‘Secret Love,’ so I’m trying to look at it from the other way and go ‘Well, everybody that’s had it for 30 years is really happy that it’s going to actually come out as a real song.’”
In the video, you can hear the original version and then watch as Nicks records the track with producer Dave Stewart, who also directed the documentary. For more information on In Your Dreams, visit the film’s official website. The documentary will screen around the U.S. for one night only on April 2, while Fleetwood Mac kicks off a world tour on April 4.
