Karen Elson, the New Stevie Nicks?

This fall, Fleetwood Mac will be honored with an album of covers (at least we assume they’d be honored by that), titled Just Tell Me That You Want Me. Assorted pop starlets, indie faves, and beautiful unknowns—i.e. MGMT, The Kills (who covered “Dreams”), Best Coast, Lykke Li, Antony Hegarty (“Landslide”), The New Pornographers, Washed Out—have each recorded a remake of a Fleetwood song, whether obvious or obscure. Perhaps most intriguing, fashion’s own Karen Elson has teamed up with Beck on what we’re guessing will be a folksy, acoustic rendition of Gold Dust Woman (which Hole attempted in 1996), probably looking every bit a dewy, pre-Klonopin Stevie Nicks.
