Watch Stevie Nicks’ Wrenching, Candid Piano Performance of “Blue Water”

For the first time in a long time, all is well in Fleetwood Mac land. The band is fully reunited for a self-proclaimed “last act,” and they’ll be going on tour and releasing a new album this year. Of course, the reunion would mean little without Stevie Nicks, and Rolling Stone recently paid obeisance to the singer’s sprawling career with a 7,000-word cover story. The magazine also got Nicks to play some songs in a stripped-down setting, just her and a piano, and her moving, meditative performance of “Blue Water” is well worth a watch.

The song is off 24 Karat Gold: Songs from the Vault, Nicks’ most recent solo album. In case there was any doubt, that voice—twangy, full-throated, clear as a bell—is good as ever.
