Stevie Nicks fans can check out a lyric video for a newly recorded solo song “Your Hand I Will Never Let It Go.” The track will be part of the soundtrack for an upcoming film by Focus Features titled “The Book of Henry,” starring Naomi Watts and Sarah Silverman.
Rolling Stone reports June 14 that the Fleetwood Mac star unveiled the video on June 14 via her official Stevie Nicks website. The song release comes ahead of a huge solo concert with Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers on July 9 at London's Hyde Park and a reunion with her Fleetwood Mac bandmates to headline the star-studded “Classic Concerts” line up on July 15 in Los Angeles at Dodger Stadium and July 30 in New York at Citi Field.
The 3:48 minute clip reveals the song as a sparsely arranged ballad. It opens with the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer singing lead vocals, accompanied by muted instrumentation as the lyrics for the first verse appear on a handmade map.
The video begins to intersperse scenes from “The Book of Henry” as the song moves into the first chorus. The muted instrumentation gives way to church organ as Nicks sings, “Fireworks explode/Front row tickets to the show/This hand I will never let it go."
The song was penned by Thomas Bartlett (a.k.a Doveman) and Guster frontman Ryan Miller. Directed by Colin T. Trevorro (“Jurassic World,” “Star Wars: Episode IX”), "The Book of Henry" is set to hit theaters on June 16. Fans can check out the lyric video above.
Nicks wrapped up her highly successful spring tour of North America in support of her most recent solo outing 24 Karat Gold: Songs From The Vault on April 6 in Uniondale, New York. The diminutive diva recently made a guest appearance at Harry Styles' gig on May 26 in Los Angeles at The Troubadour and also made contributions on a track titled “Beautiful People, Beautiful Problems” for Lana Del Rey's upcoming album Lust for Life.
Nicks will be back on the road in the U.S. this fall with solo shows line up Aug. 25 in St. Paul, Minnesota, at Minnesota State Fair, as well as a Sept. 9 – Sept. 10 in Highland Park, Illinois, as part of Ravinia Festival's 2017 line up. The multi-platinum seller will be back with her Fleetwood Mac bandmates when they set out on a recently announced 2018 world tour in June with dates TBA. Tickets for select Stevie Nicks shows are available at AXS.
