The band will support the EP on tour this February.
Texan two-piece The Wind and The Wave re-introduce some of the nation's favorite pop songs with their upcoming EP release, 'Covers One'. The record is set for release in February and will be followed up by a US tour.
The Wind And The Wave release 'Covers One' EP in February 2015
The EP features epic renditions of hits of both old and new. There's Sia's explosive 2014 showstopper 'Chandelier', R. Kelly's 2003 number one 'Ignition', Metric's 2009 single 'Gold Guns Girls', Stevie Nicks' third solo single from 1982 'Edge of Seventeen' and Regina Spektor's 2013 release 'You've Got Time'. 'Covers One' will also feature versions of Cyndi Lauper's 'Time After Time' and Simple Minds' 'Don't You (Forget About Me)' which were specially recorded for the 'Grey's Anatomy' soundtrack.
They took their time getting there, but the couple are married and celebrating with a trip to Africa.
Behati Prinsloo and Adam Levine are married! The couple tied the knot in Mexico over the weekend, so let’s recap the details of their long-awaited wedding. Because these are things we all need to know, obviously.
Beautiful people getting married in a luxury seaside resort? Yes, please.
The longtime couple tied the knot at Flora Farms in Cabo San Lucas, a favorite destination of rich spring breakers and VS models, apparently. Prinsloo’s Marchesa gown is yet to make its way onto her Instagram and/or the pages of People magazine, but apparently it was a thing of beauty.
Fleetwood Mac have announced that they're going on tour in North America and that Christine McVie has rejoined the band!
Fleetwood Mac have announced that not only has Christine McVie joined the band's line-up but that they are headed on a full North American tour and are working on a new album. The band have confirmed the rumours themselves, leaving the scores of Fleetwood Mac fans both in North American and worldwide excited for more material and live appearances from the British-American rockers.
Christine McVie Is Set To Re-Join The Fleetwood Mac Touring Line-Up.
"I have very high hopes for all of this," guitarist Lindsey Buckingham told USA Today, adding "We've only been in the studio a week, and it's been really beautiful," she said. Buckingham spoke of how Christine had been getting reacquainted with the piano, having not performed professionally for so long.
Not only did Carlton and McCauley get to have a beautiful winter wedding, they even had Stevie Nicks officiate.
It’s a fact that if Stevie Nicks officiates your wedding, it is going to be an exciting affair. It must have been so for Vanessa Carlton and John McCauley, who just had the 65-year-old singer/songwriter preside over their special day, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Nicks says singer is "a good role model."
Singer Stevie Nick's has branded R&B star Beyoncé with a big stamp of "great" during an interview with the Telegraph on Sunday. Nicks has been known to speak out harshly against other musicians, but it appears the 65 year-old Fleetwood Mac star can't sing 'Halo' popstar Beyoncé's praises highly enough.
Stevie Nicks Is Proud To Share The Music Industry With Beyoncé.
"Beyoncé's great. She's got her alter ego [Sasha Fierce], but Beyoncé the girl, the woman, is very sweet and nice and polite. "She's a good role model. She's not skanky. I'm glad we have her," Stevie said to the newspaper. The stars met in 2001 when Nicks featured in Destiny's Child's 'Bootilicious' video after the song sampled Nicks' own 'Edge of Seventeen' 1981 hit song. It is not known if the two performers have interacted since but it seems that Queen Bey left a lasting impact on the rock singer.

The Fleetwood Mac singer was discussing Queen Bey ahead of the legendary rock group's reunion
Beyoncé Knowles Carter is never going to be an artist lacking in fans, and even the artists who may have influenced the 'Grown Woman' singer are full of praise for her, namely, Stevie Nicks. The Fleetwood Mac singer was speaking with The Telegraph recently about the latest Fleetwood reunion, when she gave Bey a glowing review for her level head and the way she handles fame and presents herself to her many adoring fans.
Nicks is a fan of Beyoncé as a person and musician
"Beyoncé's great. She's got her alter ego [Sasha Fierce], but Beyoncé the girl, the woman, is very sweet and nice and polite," Nicks told the paper. She went on to add that the singer has remained herself since she burst on to the music scene in 1998 with Destiny's Child, and that after she met the star in 2001 on the set of the Destiny's Child music video for 'Bootylicious,' Stevie was overwhelmed by how down to Earth the singer was. She continued, "She's a good role model. She's not skanky. I'm glad we have her."

Albums of Note... Dave Grohl managed to rally a group of rock’s big players together to record an album designed to accompany his Sound City documentary – about the legendary LA recording studio of the same name. Amongst the stars making an appearance on Sound City: Real to Reel are Sir Paul McCartney, Josh Homme and Stevie Nicks; the latter of whom provides one of the album’s highlights:
“[The] tracks that do command attention… are worth wading through the mire for. One can only assume, for instance, that Lindsay Buckingham and the rest of Fleetwood Mac will be kicking themselves upon hearing 'You Can't Fix This,' because this is simply the greatest Fleetwood Mac song that never was.”
Stevie Nicks has joined the lineup for this year's SXSW festival.
In one of the more intriguing bookings for this year's SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, Stevie Nicks has been announced as taking part in a very special event at the Austin Convention Center on Thursday, March 14, 2013.
The enigmatic Fleetwood Mac frontwoman, who's since forged a hugely successful solo career, will sit down for a discussion about her most memorable years in the music business.
It's shaping up to be a busy year for Nicks, who is the subject of new documentary 'In Your Dreams' - which screens at the festival - focusing on her latest album of the same name. She features in Dave Grohl's SXSW Keynote documentary 'Sound City' about the famed Los Angeles studio and will later this year embark on a huge sold-out world tour with Fleetwood Mac.

Fleetwood Mac yesterday confirmed dates for the UK leg of their tour to wide spread excitement, despite the high price of tickets, and that excitement is only set to rise with the news that they will be performing new music at the shows.
As the BBC reports, the eponymous drummer of the band, Mick Fleetwood, spoke to BBC Radio 6 about the possibility or recording new music and his long term plans for a potential new studio album. "I hope there's a demand for it," Mick said. With such an interest in their latest news of reforming and returning to tour, how could he question it? He and Lindsey Buckingham, the ex-boyfriend of Stevie Nicks, wrote a few songs described as a 'calling card' for the female singer without whom Fleetwood Mac just wouldn't be the same.
"We wanted her to know we wanted to make some new music and we had some great songs," he said."But her mother died not too long after and it wasn't the time for her to do any singing, so we dropped it." Just when all was thought lost, she surprised the boys: "[R]ecently she's sung on three of them and recorded one original song of hers, so we're going to mix these songs down and there'll be something that we will play hopefully on stage."

Fleetwood Mac is back and basically everyone is excited. Having announced a tour that will span America as well as the UK there is already plenty of speculation about where they will go and what their sets will be like.
Unlike many other great bands of bygone eras whose discursive value has been delegated to rife cynicism, Fleetwood Mac have managed to avoid such tarnish and aside from a few people who have never been fans, their return is welcomed rather than dreaded. Their iconic album 'Rumours' turns 35 this year, and like the band themselves, it still doesn't seem to be stale.
Gigwise have made a few predictions about what to expect from the UK show. One of their first suggestions, that hits the nail on the head is: "A mix of age ranges in the audience." According to the website " Fleetwood Mac manage to appeal to everyone... from children to grandparents."

Albums of Note... It looks as though Bruno Mars has stepped things up a gear on Unorthodox Jukebox. From straight-up pop songs, to disco and funk stylings, and a nod to reggae in there too, Mars very rarely fails to hit the mark with these new tracks. “Unorthodox Jukebox is a rich pick and mix of different and colourful elements. His lyrics sometime fall short, but a likeably mischievous personality shines through nonetheless, and so on the whole this is a real step up even from the songs that broke him so hugely two years ago.”
Adding a fresh slant to the out-dated genre of twee-duets, Adam Green & Binki Shapiro release a self-titled album of brief ditties, which may appear cutesy at first glance but soon reveal their darker side, with lyrics such as “I can't be the first to say you're the worst, surely there's one or two? / I care more if you act as though you like me than if you really do.” Adam Green is probably the better known of the two, from his work as part of Moldy Peaches and of course his solo work, too. Binki Shapiro already has indie cred from her other band, Little Joy. “Like everything the pair have done individually, together they have made a record that's short, sweet, and maturely macabre; a late contender for an album of the year.”
Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks have announced plans for a massive world tour in 2013, as well as the possibility of new material. The band has also been tipped to headline the UK's iconic Glastonbury Festival, though it seems intrepid journalists have been eager to get the band's take on recent happenings in popular culture.
During their interview with Nicks, US Weekly magazine quizzed the singer on the Twilight franchise and in particular the cheating scandal that rocked the celebrity world this summer. The musician - known to be a huge fan of the vampire films - suggested everyone should give Kristen Stewart a break. "I was her age once, and exactly what happened to her happened to me two or three times, and whoever it was that I was with forgave me all two or three times. The fact is that when you're young and you've been in a relationship for a long time and something comes along that is a little bit overwhelming and magical, and you're kind of in another situation with someone else ... Things happen." Despite numerous relationships, Stevie's only marriage was to Kim Anderson - the widower of her close friend Robin Anderson - though they were soon divorced.
Nicks released her seventh studio solo album In Your Dreams on May 3, 2011, to positive reviews. The record debuted at No.6 on the Billboard 200, giving the singer her fifth Top 10 album on the chart.
This week Fleetwood Mac unveiled their plans for a 2013 North American tour, which has been hailed by some as the best band reunion... ever. It's only three years since they were touring together, so if we can consider it a 'reunion' it hasn't had the time for it to transcend, in its ancticipation, into 'best ever' territory, but it surely is exciting!
Both Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham have spoken to Rolling Stone about the coming year. "We actually have two new Fleetwood Mac songs that I cut with Lindsey two weeks ago we might play," says Nicks. "I had a really good time working with him for four days at his house. I got to hang out with his family and his kids, his grown up kids, and really connect with him again. We're pretty proud of what we have done, and we're looking at it through the eyes of wisdom now, instead of through the eyes of jealousy and resentment and anger."
There are iconic Fleetwood songs that the band really have to play, but the fun comes in deciding what to play the rest of the time. Lindsey Buckingham says: "When you've gone through all your must-do's, that's 75% of your potential setlist. I think with the other 25%, there are areas of our catalog that are more under-explored. Maybe we'll play more songs from Tusk. I'd also like to see an extended middle portion of the show that's just me and Stevie. This is just me talking from the top of my head. For now, I have no particular vision of what this tour is going to be."
Fleetwood Mac have announced their tour dates for US and Canada in 2013 and the last date of the tour is in Detroit on June 12… just a few weeks before the UK’s iconic Glastonbury festival, which takes place on June 21 – 23. Can you see where we’re headed with this train of thought? Well, it looks like we’re not the only ones starting to think that Stevie Nicks and co. would make a brilliant addition to next year’s line-up, as the bookies, William Hill, have slashed the odds of Fleetwood Mac headlining the festival’s Pyramid Stage on the Sunday to 6/1, making them second favourites.
Currently, The Rolling Stones are favourites to be announced as the festival closers though frankly we’d like to know who’s giving William Hill their inside info because they currently have The Smiths in third position and everybody knows that Morrissey and Marr will never agree to let bygones be bygones and reform in time for Glastonbury 2013. Or ever. Right…? Right? Or is there something that someone’s not telling us?
The line-up for Glastonbury 2013 hasn’t yet been announced, even though tickets for the event have already sold out – such is the pulling power of what is widely considered to be the best festival on the planet. In 22nd place, on William Hill’s list is the Korean rapper, Psy at 200/1. We’re not convinced that Psy’s going to produce another hit on the same scale as ‘Gangnam Style’; file that one under ‘wasted bet.’
Next year’s Fleetwood Mac tour is NOT a farewell tour, insists singer Stevie Nicks. The band may not have released any new material in a decade (since last album Say You Will) but they are heading out on the road in April 2013, with a 34-city tour around the US and Canada. The tour winds up in Detroit on June 12 and the eagle-eyed amongst you may already have noted that that is just a few weeks before the UK’s infamous Glastonbury Festival. There’s a very real chance that Fleetwood Mac could be announced as one of the bands to play Glastonbury 2013.
“It's never going to be a final tour until we drop dead. There's no reason for this to end as long as everyone is in good shape and takes care of themselves,” Stevie Nicks told Reuters. The tour will coincide with the 35th anniversary of their classic album Rumours. It was the album that landed the band with four hit singles and global sales of over 40 million, though its creation was marred by emotional tensions within the band.
Nicks insists that there is still plenty of life in Fleetwood Mac and revealed that she and Lindsay Buckingham had been writing new material again recently. “I don't want a Fleetwood Mac tour every year or year and a half. That's why people get so excited. ... All of a sudden the world is on edge and that's what gets you out there... If you never stop, you don't lose your energy.”

Fleetwood Mac are one of the best loved bands the world over, with their 1978 album Rumours still managing to find its way on the iPods of 15 year olds and 50 year olds alike. They have just released details of a 2013 tour which will visit 34 cities.
"In my opinion," Stevie Nicks, vocalist from the band, says to the Huffington Post, "Fleetwood Mac should be off the road for three years because then when we come together it's an event because you didn't just see us last year or just see us the year before." Stevie was the one to hold the band back last year when they wanted to tour again, as she wanted to focus on her solo album 'In Your Dreams' for another year, and given the buzz surrounding next year's tour, it was the right decision to make.
The band have seen their fair of success and drama during their 40 year success story, including a wide ranging line up as well as bankruptcy scares, rehab and, on a high note, the 1993 decision by Bill Clinton to use their song 'Don't Stop' as his election song. Stevie Nicks clearly has a great amount of love and respect for the band that made her famous, largely because she likes the best of both worlds. In her interview with Huffington Post, she preached advice to current solo stars to get themselves a rock band- notably, Rihanna. "She could front a really great rock-n-roll band and she should." She said, "she would probably be happier had she actually done something like that because then she could have had Rihanna with a great band. And then she could have been a rock star and she could have gone to her solo Rihanna and been a pop star. She could have done both like I do."

Fleetwood Mac rocker Stevie Nicks insists she "deeply regrets" suggesting she would have killed Nicki Minaj and gone to prison for it should the Queens rapper had threatened her in the same way she did Mariah Carey.
"How dare this little girl! ... If I had been Mariah I would have walked over to Nicki and strangled her to death right there," Nicks, 64, told The Daily after video clips of the infamous bust-up emerged online. "I would have killed her in front of all those people and had to go to jail for it," she added. The American Idol judges caused a storm after a heated debate over a contestant seemingly got out of hand, with Carey later revealing to Barbara Walters that Minaj had threatened to shoot her - something that incensed Stevie Nicks. The Fleetwood Mac star has since backed off, telling the New York Daily News, "I want to apologize for my remarks about Nicki Minaj's behavior toward Mariah Carey, which I said during a long and exhausting day of interviews," adding, "It was very out of character for me and I deeply regret what I said. I feel very protective toward Mariah Carey who has gone through many difficulties in her life and I spoke without thinking. I think all artists should be respectful toward one another and that includes me."
It has been claimed that Carey could quit American Idol over the incident, and the future of the current judging panel hangs in the balance.
Sadly, producer, director, and "experiencer" Arquette did exactly one thing well: the title. All We Are Saying is appropriately a dull, bloated gab marathon. And since she didn't clear the featured artists' music for the movie, it's all talk, no song, not even a few bars from a stage performance. Imagine The Aristocrats without the joke, stretched out over 105 minutes.
