Stevie Nicks was in Toronto this week ahead of Fleetwood Mac’s show Tuesday night at the Air Canada Centre.
The singer was promoting her new documentary In Your Dreams. The movie, filmed with Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart, follows Nicks as she makes her 2011 album, also called In Your Dreams.
The Canadian premiere was held at the TIFF Bell Lightbox on Monday night.
“We got stuff that nobody ever gets. We got the actual writing of the songs – nobody ever gets that, because you usually don’t let anybody in while you’re doing it,” Nicks told CityNews at the Lightbox.
“Everybody got a camera. There were like 12 people there with a camera,” Nicks said.
Nicks said Stewart persuaded her to make the documentary and to film it in her house. At first, she said, they were only going to record the album at her home.
When he proposed the idea, she said, “Are you serious? Are you kidding? You mean I have to put makeup on every day?”
She said Stewart promised that if she didn’t like the footage, they wouldn’t use it.
“It was a promise made between the caterpillar and Alice. And I knew it was true,” Nicks said.
In Your Dreams will play at the Lightbox until April 18.
