Stevie Nicks, the legendary singer-songwriter whose highly acclaimed 30 year solo career includes seven studio albums, iconic hits, and record sales in the millions, will release deluxe editions with newly remastered audio and never before released live and recorded music from her first two solo albums Bella Donna and The Wild Heart.
Bella Donna: Deluxe Edition is a three-CD set and The Wild Heart: Deluxe Editionis a two-CD set. Both will be released on November 4. On the same day, newly remastered versions of the original albums will also be available on LP and CD. The music will be available digitally and through streaming services as well. A complete list of cuts on both deluxe editions follows this release.
Nicks joined producer Jimmy Iovine to begin recording songs for her solo debut, Bella Donna, following the recording of Fleetwood Mac’s Tusk and subsequent tour. The 1981 album was quickly certified platinum. Today, the album is 4x platinum in the US and went to #1 in Australia thanks to Nicks classics like Edge Of Seventeen, Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around (with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers) and Leather And Lace (with Don Henley).
Bella Donna: Deluxe Edition uncovers unreleased versions of Edge Of Seventeen and Leather And Lace, as well as rarities like Blue Lamp from the Heavy Metal Soundtrack and Sleeping Angel from the Fast Times At Ridgemont High Soundtrack. This deluxe edition also includes a concert from 1981 that features performances of songs from Bella Donna along with several Fleetwood Mac favourites.
Nicks returned in 1983 with her follow-up, The Wild Heart, which peaked at #8 on the Australian album chart and has been certified double platinum in the US. The album produced hits like Stand Back, Nightbird and I Will Run To You, which features Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. The Wild Heart: Deluxe Edition builds on the original album with unreleased versions of All The Beautiful Worlds, a session version of Wild Heart, and Garbo, the B-side to Stand Back.
