"I'm used to bands where we argue over how to do the song. These Nashville guys just say, 'Yes, ma'am.'"

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 3 (UPI) -- Stevie Nicks has unveiled the second single from her upcoming solo album 24 Karat Gold - Songs from The Vault.

An official lyrics video for the artist's new ballad, "Lady," was released on the singer's YouTube account on August 25, but Nicks told Rolling Stone three days later that the track "was on a cassette I kept in a box, in a sacred trunk that my mother had."

"Lady' captures the mood of me and Lindsey [Buckingham] being scared to death when we moved to L.A. in 1971," she said. "Our producer Keith Olsen gave us this white carved piano -- I wrote 'Rhiannon' on it. But I didn't know how to play. 'Lady' was me figuring it out."

The new album, due on October 7, will be filled with songs Nicks has written, but never recorded. Some of them date back to 1969 and a few are so personal not even her Fleetwood Mac bandmates have heard them.

Nicks said she recorded the 17 tracks in just three weeks in Nashville. The 66-year-old rocker said the solo recording process was different than anything she's done before.
